Activate the "Verification in two steps" in WhatsApp

Activating this option is very simple, and its purpose is to increase security to avoid being victims of a hijacked account and/or identity theft.

When One-Step Verification is activated, the app asks to register a recovery email and a 6-digit PIN that will be requested when trying to log in with our number on a new device or another terminal. The PIN will also be requested regularly to remind you of it.

Steps to activate the option:

  1. Enter the 3 points that are at the top right of the WhatsApp main screen,
  2. Select Settings >> Account,
  3. Choose Two-Step Verification, and follow the instructions (enter a 6-digit PIN and email address).

It is worth mentioning that, from the same place, it is possible to disable verification, change the PIN and the registered email address.
