WhatsApp Adds 3 New Features To Protect Users
WhatsApp, the popular messaging app, has just announced the rollout of some new security features aimed at protecting user accounts.
According to Meta, the parent company of WhatsApp, the three new security features will be added to the app in the coming months to give users more control over their personal messages and an extra layer of privacy.
The latest additions to the security arsenal are Account Protect, Device Verification, and Automatic Security Codes, which will complement the current security features including encrypted messaging, end-to-end encrypted backups, and two-step verification. This collective set of tools is a complete suite intended to safeguard user data and ensure its utmost security.
Although the new security features will be automatically added to each user’s device, two features must actually be turned on: two-step verification and the use of end-to-end encrypted backups. These features provide an extra layer of security and are recommended for all users.
WhatsApp’s new security features are a welcome addition to the app, providing users with more control over their personal messages and an extra layer of privacy. With these new tools in place, users can feel confident that their data is safe and secure while using the app.
