WhatsApp Announces Stronger Security Features for Accounts & Devices

WhatsApp announced three features that will make the security stronger on accounts and devices. The three features are Account Protect, Device Verification, and Automatic Security Codes. Account Protect is more about protection when you move to a new device. So now WhatsApp will verify with the old device before moving you to the new device so that there is no accidental or problematic move that you did not intend to happen. Device Verification is more about protecting you from malware when your device is under attack, so they have additional verifications to avoid that. And Automatic Security Codes is to ensure that you are sending your message to the intended recipient and not somebody else. So all of these are good features. You can dig into more tech details, we will link to all of them in the show notes.
