WhatsApp is the undisputed king of all instant messaging apps and the reason behind this is that it has kept evolving with time over the years. WhatsApp earlier brought the end-to-end encryption for all chats which is really praiseworthy. Among other notable features that WhatsApp has introduced this year are multi-racial and unisexual emoji. It even very recently introduced the mentioning feature in group chats. You just type the “@” and WhatsApp will suggest you the names of the group members whom you can mention.
A new feature has been spotted on the WhatsApp translation requests which suggest that WhatsApp might be very soon bringing a six-digit passcode protection feature on its platform. These translation requests are very authentic and have revealed tonnes of features in the past too.
Few of the phrases used in these text strings sent by WhatsApp for translation to its volunteers include “Enter the current six-digit passcode“, “Enter a recovery email address” and,”Passcodes don’t match. Try again“. The passcode feature will take the encryption level up a notch and provide more security to chats. The mail recovery option will prove handy in case you forget the passcode.
Please remember that there is no surity yet that WhatsApp will include the passcode protection future in the upcoming updates or not. It is also unsure whether this feature will be compulsory or optional if it indeeds gets rolled out. One thing is however sure that our messaging experience is going to get enhanced and secure in the coming future with these latest developments.
