WhatsApp has finally enabled the much awaited two-step verification for Android and Windows smartphone users. However, this new feature is limited to those signed up for beta release.

You can find this new feature under your account settings. By enabling two-step verification, WhatsApp will ask you to enter your secret passcode each time you try to use it on a new phone or in case you reset the app.

There is an option to add your email address as well, so if you ever forget your passcode you can easily reset it.

Why do you need it?

Two-step verification guarantees that anyone using your phone number couldn’t get into your personal messages until a passcode has been provided.

Android users having 2.16.341 and above can see this new feature in settings, whereas on Windows you’ll have to get version 2.16.280 or newer.
