WhatsApp , the world’s largest messaging app, has teamed up with website security company CloudFlare to introduce a new security feature in the app.
According to WA Beta Info, a company that monitors WhatsApp features and updates, WhatsApp’s new feature is called “Code Verify”, which is basically an extension of the application’s web browsing. Protect the web code, so that it is possible to know if someone has tampered with the code.
Once the code verify feature is installed, WhatsApp will work automatically when using the web.
How to use the feature
When using the feature, WhatsApp will display 3 different messages, the first of which will indicate that the green icon on the code verify will indicate that the user is using an authentic version of the WhatsApp web while the code will also confirm.
In the second message, the red icon on the code verification will indicate that the code is unverified. Similarly, pointing the orange icon on the code verify feature in the third message will address the potential threat.
Note that the code verification feature in the WhatsApp can be downloaded from the web browser store, while these security features are currently available on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge.
