WhatsApp might soon get a ‘login approval’ feature similar to Instagram and Facebook

WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new security feature. Our best assumption is that it may take some time before it is made available to the general public. If you wish to test out WhatsApp, make sure you are a member of the beta channel.

WhatsApp is a service to which we have all become accustomed over time. It now plays a significant role in many aspects of our daily lives. WhatsApp's security is more crucial nowadays than earlier because it is widely used for things like business communication, group video calls, and even payments. It appears that the programmers are creating a brand-new feature called "login approval" in order to enhance this and boost the platform's security.

It turns out that the function is apparently still under development and hasn't been made available to beta testers. According to a WABetaInfo report, WhatsApp users will receive in-app alerts whenever someone attempts to access their accounts. This is comparable to Meta's control over other platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.

The prompt will provide details such as the time someone attempted to access your account and maybe the name or model of the device making the attempt. Those who frequently switch between devices will find it safer. When compared to the conventional authorization technique, which calls for users to enter an OTP, it is also quicker and more useful if your primary device is not around.

Combining the login approval function with the two ways of entering verification codes will make it difficult for hackers to access your chats without authorization. As WhatsApp engineers did not provide a specific release date.
