The two-step authentication has become one of the most comprehensive in the world and popular security tools. Not surprisingly, it has been proves that the only use of the password is no longer a final measure, so that companies and pages are being put hands to the work in order to add new layers of security to protect the personal data of the users.
Many of the most popular services have already integrated this new measure, although there is no doubt that there are many additional steps are still pending. For example, some applications have not yet implemented the option, leaving users to partially insecure. And, as rumored, the WhatsApp application may include two-step authentication.
WABetaInfo Twitter account has leaked that the WhatsApp team is working to implement the two-step authentication in future versions. This is a hidden feature that has been located in the numbering 2.16.183, although not many details available yet. Basically, enabling the option would establish an additional six-digit code, plus a recovery email account. In this way, additional security would be added.
In any case, we do not know exactly how it will work this new authentication method. We’ll have to keep waiting. For now, few details are available in the latest beta versions. We look forward to the innovations that are published. In any case, an excellent security option.
