WhatsApp is rolling out two-step verification for Android and Windows

WhatsApp is rolling out two-step verification for its users with the latest beta update. The feature is available in the most recent beta version (2.16.341 and higher) For Android and according to MS Power User, the feature is also working on the Windows Phone beta app. Once enabled, the app prompts the user for a static six-digit code every time a new phone tries to access WhatsApp with the registered number.

WhatsApp has been rumoured to introduce two-factor authentication for many months now and the feature has finally gone live for beta users. The feature can be enabled by heading over to Account Settings, where a new option called Two-step verification has just appeared.

Tapping on Two-step verification asks the user to enable the feature. Once enabled, user will have to enter a 6-digit passcode that will be asked each time he/she tries to register their number with WhatsApp. The setup also asks for an alternate email address, the one needed for resetting user password.
