WhatsApp Now Has Two Step Verification

WhatsApp is rolling out a two-step verification feature starting today. This feature will allow users to securely verify their number with a custom-generated six-digit passcode whenever they install the app on a new device.

To enable this feature, do the following:

  • Open the app
  • Tap Settings
  • Tap Account
  • Tap Two-step verification
  • Tap Enable

You will then be asked if you want to enter your email address. This is used by WhatsApp to send a link via email to disable two-step verification in case the six-digit passcode is forgotten, and also to help safeguard the account. But to help you remember the passcode, you’ll be asked for it from time to time and you can’t opt out of that.

    No idea how to contact you without this, but I got Carplay working on a 2015 Canadian Sonata without too much trouble using the US Carplay update. Thread here: http://www.hyundai-forums.com/lf-2015-sonata-i45/482873-direct-download-2015-sonata-carplay-update-tool-6.html#post4925722
