WhatsApp is working on a secure account section for two-step verification.
The feature under development will let users configure a secondary PIN. The six-digit code will act as an additional layer of security to the WhatsApp account, WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo said.
"WhatsApp won't force users to enable two-step verification since there is a skip button," WABetaInfo said. Users can enable two-step verification via WhatsApp Settings. Settings > Account > Two-step verification
WhatsApp’s ‘secure your account’ section is under development and it is unclear as to when the feature will roll out to everyone.
