Prevent Your WhatsApp From Being Hacked With Two-Step Verification

Well, your WhatsApp account to some reasonable extent is already secure because no can can login your WhatsApp account. If they try, WhatsApp will text you a code to verify the login attempt.

However, if you feel that your phone has been hacked and the hacker can read your text messages, or if you anticipate losing your sim card, you can enable Two-step verification in your WhatsApp so that you can have an extra layer of security.

What is Two-Step Verification?

Two-step verification is a feature in WhatsApp that allows you to setup a 6 digit pin, so that any one who wishes to hack into your WhatsApp will not only be required to verify your phone number, they will also be asked to input the 6 digit pin which you have setup previously.

Unlike the phone verification code that is sent via SMS, this 6 digit pin will not be sent via SMS, so it is only you that knows it. Consider it as a password for WhatsApp.

What About If I Forgot The 6 Digit Pin

When setting up the two-step verification (the 6-digit pin) you will be asked to provide an email address.

So if for any reason you forgot your 6-digit pin, WhatsApp will send you a mail with a link to disable the two-step verification feature on your account.

If after you have set up two-step verification for your WhatsApp and then you receive a mail to disable it, when you were not the one that made the request, know that one is trying to hack into your WhatsApp so do not click on the link.

How to Setup Two-step Verification

To setup the two-step verification for your WhatsApp account, do the following:

  • Open WhatsApp
  • Go to Settings
  • Then tap on Account
  • Next, tap on Two-step verification
  • Finally, tap on Enable to begin the process.
