How to enable two-step verification on WhatsApp

Security is everything in these days especially when you are on internet or using personal data like chatting, sending photos, etc... Almost all social apps like Facebook Messenger adds a two-step verification as an additional layer of security, that's what WhatsApp also do.

An optional measure designed to help strengthen the security of your account, two-step verification requires that you verify your mobile phone number after installing WhatsApp’s mobile app on a new device with a six-digit code that you created using this feature.

What is the two-step verification do ?

This feature requires you to create a six-digit passcode and provide an optional rescue email address. Upon enabling two-step verification, you’ll need to enter the passcode every time you install WhatsApp on a new device.

Unlike similar two-step verification systems, WhatsApp doesn’t generate these passcodes for you—each and every user is required to create their custom passcode for two-step verification.

Think twice before skipping this step: if you enable two-step verification without providing an email address, and you forget your passcode, WhatsApp will lock you out of your account.
