WhatsApp gets a smart new way to verify your identity
WhatsApp is working on new features that allow connection Encrypted messaging service It’s less inconvenient and safer.
Currently, when creating a new account or re-registering an existing one, WhatsApp users are required to provide a 6-digit code delivered by SMS or phone.
However, the company is developing a new feature called Flash Calls that uses information in call logs to aid in this process. This addition should complement future multi-device support capabilities. This will allow you to access your WhatsApp account on up to four devices.
The Flash Calls option is still under development, but WatsApp was the first to preview the latest beta 22.214.171.124 for Android.
WhatsApp flash call
For this feature to work, users must first allow WhatsApp to access call logs so that the service can handle calls on the device. This information is only used to facilitate a quick connection, and not for other purposes.
When you activate Flash Calls, WhatsApp calls the user’s phone number and hangs up automatically. The goal is to ensure that the last number in the phone’s call history matches the number that normally delivers the 6-digit code.
This number is always unique. That is, you cannot play with your system to take control of someone else’s WhatsApp account.
The new features are completely optional and users are free to use the 6-digit encoding scheme as needed. Additionally, iOS does not allow third-party apps to request access to call data, so it is only Android at the time of release and may be used in the near future.
