WhatsApp might soon get a ‘login approval’ feature similar to Instagram and Facebook

Over the years, WhatsApp has become something we are all used to. In many ways, it has become an integral part of our daily lives. However, with WhatsApp now being widely used for things like office communications, group video calls, and even payments, the security of the popular app is more important than ever. To improve this, it appears that the developers are working on a new feature called “Accept Login” which will increase the security of the platform.

As it turns out, the feature is reportedly in development and hasn’t been released to beta testers. According to a report by WABetaInfoWhatsApp users will receive in-app alerts if someone tries to log into their account. This is similar to other Meta platforms like Facebook and Instagram.

The prompt will display information such as the time someone tried to access your account and possibly the name or model of the device trying to access. This will make it safer for those who often switch devices. It is also faster compared to the traditional authorization method that requires users to enter a one-time password and can come in handy if you don’t have your primary device.

Combine the login approval feature with the two verification code systems, and hackers are sure to struggle to gain unauthorized access to your conversations. Since the developers of WhatsApp have not shared any specific time frame as to when it will be available, we believe it may be some time before it is rolled out to the general public. If you are interested in trying it out, make sure you are part of the beta WhatsApp channel.
