The messaging platform also allows the users to add an extra layer of security to their account by enabling the two-step verification feature which requires a six-digit PIN when resetting and verifying your WhatsApp account. This is helpful in case a SIM card gets stolen or if the phone is compromised.
Besides this, WhatsApp has provided the users with a simple way to block contacts. It has also suggested that the users refrain from sharing personal details like bank account information, debit or credit card information etc. The app also warns the users against clicking spam links which could be disguised malwares.
The users should also be aware while sending a forwarded message to others and must avoid if the information is not true.
