Developers of WhatsApp have been adding numerous features to its platform to make it more robust and secure for users. With new developments, it would soon be possible for users to manage or enable two-step verification from the desktop client.
Two-step verification has been available on the platform for mobile users for a long time but not available to the desktop client but according to reports from WABetaInfo,
the Meta-owned messaging giant is currently working to add the ability to manage two-step verification using its desktop or web app. As per the report, the feature is currently under development and could be available for the public with a future update soon.
The report also states that the company wants to protect your WhatsApp account from unauthorized access, should you become a victim of a SIM swap. So, with this, users will be able to easily manage the two-step verification system for their WhatsApp accounts via the desktop app. You can check out a preview of the feature on the desktop app in the screenshot below.
The report further states that introducing the feature on the desktop app or web client would allow users to enable or disable the two-step verification system for their accounts, especially when they lose their phone and cannot remember the PIN.
As for the availability of the feature, it is currently not available to the public. However, WABetaInfo mentions that WhatsApp is planning to release it with a future update soon.
