WhatsApp has introduced new security features, including Account Protect and Device Verification, to enhance user privacy and security on the popular messaging app. These features are part of WhatsApp's ongoing efforts to ensure that users' personal information remains secure.
Account Protect is a new feature that allows users to set a six-digit PIN to secure their WhatsApp account. Once set, the PIN will be required to access the account on a new device. This will prevent unauthorized access to a user's WhatsApp account, even if someone else has their phone number.
Device Verification is another new security feature that allows users to verify their device's security code with a contact. This will help prevent unauthorized access to a user's account, even if someone else has their phone number and tries to set up WhatsApp on a new device.
In addition to these new features,
WhatsApp is also rolling out a new safety feature that will alert users when someone tries to add them to a group chat. This will give users more control over who can add them to a group chat and ensure that they are not added to a group without their consent.
These new security features are available to all WhatsApp users and can be accessed by updating the app to the latest version. With these updates, WhatsApp is taking a step towards making the app more secure and protecting users' personal information.
