Two-step verification requires that people registering for their WhatsApp account enter a six-digit code and then a personal PIN.

The move will ensure that WhatsApp users are who they say they are by adding an additional layer of security when people are signing in. The change, now part of the WhatsApp beta program, was first spotted by WABetaInfo.
