How to enable Whatsapp 2 step verification and secure your WhatsApp account

WhatsApp 2 step verification feature adds more security to your
WhatsApp account.
When you have two-step verification enabled, any attempt to verify
your phone number on WhatsApp must be accompanied by the six-digit
passcode that you created using this feature.

The WhatsApp two-step verification security feature, which had been
under testing for several months, is finally being rolled out to all
users of the app. With this feature, those who use WhatsApp on
Android, iPhone, and Windows platforms will be able to verify their
number when they install the app on a new device more securely

If you have two-step verification enabled, your number will not be
permitted to reverify on WhatsApp within 7 days of last using WhatsApp
without your passcode. Thus, if you forget your own passcode, but did
not provide an email to disable two-step verification, even you will
not be permitted to reverify on WhatsApp within 7 days of last using
WhatsApp. After these 7 days, your number will be permitted to
reverify on WhatsApp without your passcode, but you will lose all
pending messages upon reverifying - they will be deleted. If your
number is reverified on WhatsApp after 30 days of last using WhatsApp,
and without your passcode, your account will be deleted and a new one
will be created upon successfully reverifying

Here's how you can enable it on your phone.

Open WhatsApp
Go to Settings
Go to Account
Look for Two-step verification

Tap on Enable

On the next screen, enter six-digit passcode.

Next, re-enter six-digit passcode.

Optionally, add your email address on the next screen.

Confirm your email address

The WhatsApp 2 Step Verification is Enabled now!
