It’s important to keep your WhatsApp account as secure as possible what with hacker threats all the time.
Two-step verification protects your WhatsApp account if someone tries to add it to a new device.
It means you’ll have to enter a PIN as you try to set it up.
The feature has been around for years but is still very useful for bulking up your security.
And it’s very easy to set-up too.
How to set up Two-Step Verification on WhatsApp
Open WhatsApp and go to the Settings.
Select Account, then Two-Step Verification.
Tap Turn On then enter your desired PIN.
You’ll have to enter it a second time to verify that you’ve typed the same PIN.
Finally, you need to enter your email address so you can reset the PIN if you forget it.
You can skip this step but we strongly advise you to go ahead and enter your email address.
Otherwise you could find yourself locked out of your WhatsApp account forever.
When that’s done, tap Next.
And you’re done.
Next time you or anyone else attempts to set up WhatsApp on a new phone, the PIN will be required.
