Ways to Secure WhatsApp
WhatsApp can be protected from being hacked by following these procedures.
WhatsApp has given users 3 ways to keep their accounts safe and said that those who follow them would save their number from being hacked.
Through a series of tweets on Twitter, WhatsApp told users that if they use two-step verification, end-to-end encryption, and block/report, the account will always be under their control.
The company said that the first layer of account protection is two-step verification, a feature that requires entering a secret code to use the account on another mobile.
Another feature of WhatsApp’s security feature is end-to-end encryption, whereby messages sent by one user to another friend cannot be seen by anyone other than the user.
The last and major security layer of WhatsApp is combo, which allows the user to report or block any suspicious number.
By following all these steps, the user can use WhatsApp without fear.
On the other hand, WhatsApp has started testing a feature to stop recording videos, photos and audio files sent for one-time viewing.
Under the said feature, any user will not be able to take a screenshot nor record any ‘Once View’ image, video or audio file.
Under this feature, if someone attempts to take a screenshot of the received ‘Once View’ video, audio and picture, he will receive a notification rather than the screenshot, informing him that under the safety traits, They cannot carry a screenshot.
