WhatsApp is in the process of rolling out a new feature that requires users to verify their accounts using their personal email addresses. This feature appears to be in a limited rollout phase, with only a small number of beta users currently reporting its availability.
Initial reports about email verification surfaced, indicating that the WhatsApp development team has been working on this system since August. The new verification method aims to enhance the security of users’ accounts, making it more challenging for unauthorized access.
While the rollout is currently limited, it is anticipated that this verification system will become available to all users in the near future. The verification process itself appears to be a straightforward one—you simply enter your email address and await a verification email in your inbox. That’s all there is to it.
