WhatsApp : Instant messaging platform WhatsApp is always working on the privacy and security of its users. The app often assures users that they are safe on its platform. For this, the app also brings many features. Such as end-to-end encryption, 2FA, and group privacy controls. Now once again Meta has announced several new security features for its messaging platform WhatsApp. The company has released a list by introducing three new security features.
As far as the rollout of features is concerned, WhatsApp says that these features will be rolled out to all users in the coming months. Let us know the details of all these features.
As of now, there is no verification if a user switches from one device to another. Due to lack of investigation, hackers can probably use this loop for hacking. Because of this, now WhatsApp is making it safe for users to switch their account to a new device. The company says that from now on, the company may ask users to verify their identity on their old devices as an additional security check. Explaining this, the company said in a blog post that the new Account Protect feature will help notify you about unauthorized attempts to move your account to another device.
Mobile device malware is one of the biggest threats to privacy and security of people today as it allows users to access their phones without their permission. Hackers can use WhatsApp of users to send unwanted messages through malware. To prevent this, WhatsApp has added checks to verify your account without requiring any assistance from you.

The WhatsApp security code verification feature helps ensure that you are chatting securely. You can check this manually by going to the Encryption tab under Contact Info. To make this process easier for everyone, WhatsApp has introduced a security feature based on a process called “key transparency”, which allows it to automatically verify that you have a secure connection. The company wrote, “This means that when you click on the encryption tab, you will be able to immediately verify that your private conversations are secure.”
