Approval needed for WhatsApp login

Approval needed for WhatsApp login

WhatsApp users will receive in-app alerts if someone tries to log into their accounts similarly to other Meta-owned platforms like Facebook and Instagram.

The prompt will show information like the time when someone tried to access your account and maybe the name or model of the device that is trying to gain access, reports WABetaInfo.

This will make it safer for those who often switch between devices. It is also faster compared to the traditional authorization method that requires users to enter OTP and can come in handy if you do not have your primary device around.

Combine the login approval and two verification code system, the hackers are sure to have a hard time gaining unauthorized access to your chats. The report predicts it takes a while for going public.
