WhatsApp has provided a new solution to improve the security of this messenger’s account users.
WhatsApp has introduced several new security features, the most important of which are designed to protect users against SIM card hacking and other attacks related to social engineering. Now if you want to set up your WhatsApp account on a new device, this messenger might ask you to confirm the account transfer process using your old device.

Suppose you are worried about your WhatsApp account being locked. In that case, we must mention that, according to the company’s spokesperson, the Account Protect function will be activated only if this messenger detects a suspicious subject. Also, if you can’t access your old device, you can ask WhatsApp to send you a one-time password.

Even if you want to avoid transferring your WhatsApp account to a new device, the unique features of this messenger will still help increase your security. You don’t need to interact directly with WhatsApp’s security verification feature, but doing so will help protect your account against malware and possible hacker penetration.

WhatsApp has also made it easier to use cryptographic verifications. Currently, to use this feature, you need to scan the QR code or compare the 60-digit number on the device on both sides of the conversation.
