WhatsApp is working on a lot of features. A fresh report claims that the platform is testing a major security feature for its desktop and web version. For those unaware, two-step verification is an optional feature that adds more security to your WhatsApp account.

It is currently available on WhatsApp mobile app. WhatsApp is planning to bring this feature for web/desktop clients as well. They will be able to enable and disable two verification from their laptops also

This new feature will give users additional security and protection against scams. As per the screenshot shared by WaBetaInfo, one will get two options to enable this feature. WhatsApp will let you set a PIN or add an email address.

When you enable two-step verification, you have the option to enter your emai address. This allows WhatsApp to email you a reset link in case you ever forget your PIN and also helps safeguard your account.

This two-step verification login is not compulsory as users can either enable or disable the feature. Currently, this feature is under development. This feature when rolled out will add more security for WhatsApp web users.

How to protect your WhatsApp account?

Currently, mobile users can enable the fingerprint authentication feature as well as two-step verification. This way, if someone has your smartphone, they won’t be able to access your WhatsApp chats as the app will ask the person to enter a security PIN or scan fingerprint.

The fingerprint lock feature is visible in the Privacy section of the app. For two-step verification, just head to Settings > Account. Once you enable biometric authentication on your smartphone, you will also be required to first unlock the app before linking to the account.
