WhatsApp Working On Major Update

SAN FRANSISCO: WhatsApp is reportedly working on a major update for desktop and web versions.

The Meta-owned instant messaging app is developing the ability to add two-step verification to its desktop app and web versions, according to WABetaInfo.

The update is aimed to prevent WhatsApp from unauthorised login and help users have extra protection.

After registration of a WhatsApp account and entering the 6-digit code, a personal PIN will be required to log into the account, WABetaInfo revealed.

WhatsApp wants to make it easier to manage two-step verification everywhere, so they are working on introducing the feature on the web/desktop client in a future update.

It will be possible to enable or disable the two-step verification. This is very important especially when users lose phone and do not remember PIN.
