If you have recently bought a phone, then connecting your WhatsApp account is a lot easier now it will only take an OTP verification via SMS. But what if you lost your phone number or are no longer using it? Don’t worry, WhatsApp’s SMS verification is very safe and secure. It ensures that no one can access your WhatsApp account without an OTP verification.
“Although there is no other safer alternative way. So if you don’t have access to your phone number, you won’t be able to receive the SMS and you won’t be able to log into WhatsApp.”
To find a solution to this problem, as WABetaInfo said, “The company is testing an Email Verification feature that allows users to log in to their accounts using email in addition to their phone number. This new feature will be an addition to the existing verification process and will not replace SMS verification. It will serve as an alternative method to help users log in their accounts if they are unable to receive the 6-digit OTP via SMS.”
“WhatsApp’s email verification feature is currently available in beta versions for Android and iOS. Users can find it in the newly added Account settings section. According to a screenshot shared by WABetaInfo, the email verification feature on WhatsApp is easy to set up. It has a field where users can enter their email address. The text next to the field explains the user’s email addresses will not be visible to others and that the verification system helps them access their WhatsApp accounts. Once users have entered their email addresses, they need to verify them. If users do not verify their email addresses, they will be prompted to do so, and a button will appear that they can click to restore the verification email.”
“WhatsApp has been testing a new email verification feature for a long time, and the latest beta version 220.127.116.11 update makes it available to more people. While it’s still only available to a small number of people using the beta version of the app, it looks like WhatsApp is getting ready to roll it out to everyone soon.”
“While in the meantime, WhatsApp is also working on several other features to improve user experience and safety. For instance, it is developing alternative profiles that can be seen by people who are restricted from seeing your main profile picture and AI-powered support chat. WhatsApp is also planning major visual changes, such as a bottom navigation bar and new color schemes for message bubbles. These updates could make WhatsApp look and feel much better in the coming months.”
