A recent development for WhatsApp users on the beta branch is the introduction of email verification. However, this feature appears to have been rolled out to a select few beta users, indicating a limited release.
Reports regarding email verification initially surfaced, suggesting that the WhatsApp team has been actively working on this system since August. The primary objective of this new verification method is to enhance the security of users’ accounts, making it more challenging for unauthorized access.
While the current rollout is confined to a small group, we anticipate that the verification system will become available to all users in the near future. The process itself seems straightforward—users simply input their email and await a verification email in their inbox. That’s all there is to it.
