In addition to starting to display a list of participants who have left a group, the WhatsApp beta is also getting another very important feature this week. We are talking about login approval.
According to the folks at WABetaInfo, the functionality was released in version 220.127.116.11 code, and serves to protect the user’s account from possible scams.
That’s because WhatsApp should start requiring user authorization when they try to log in on a new device. As simple as it may seem, this prevents scammers and cybercriminals from hijacking an account.
See the capture below:
In addition to asking for authorization before releasing the login, WhatsApp must also display important information on the warning screen. An example of this is that the user will be able to check the time of the login attempt.
Another detail that should also appear is the smartphone model you are trying to access the bill, something very positive to avoid confusion.
For now, the novelty is still under development and cannot even be activated by the beta audience. In any case, it can be released together with the new WhatsApp information channel.
