WhatsApp Introduces 6-Digit Code to Account Access
Last year, WhatsApp added a feature called “multi-device,” which lets people use their WhatsApp account on more than one device at the same time without their smartphone. Companion Mode is a new feature that was just added to WhatsApp for Android users as part of a beta update. With the new feature, you can instantly use your WhatsApp account on another phone. Since WhatsApp is the most popular messaging app in the world, many people worry about their privacy when they use it on a lot of different devices. To fix this problem, WhatsApp has reportedly started to give beta testers a new verification option.
WABetaInfo says that the feature will let you use a 6-digit code to log in to your WhatsApp account in a safe way. In simple terms, this feature is a lot like the one-time password (OTP) login, where you get a new set of six numbers each time you try to log in.

According to the screenshot in the report, the Meta-owned messaging platform gives users three ways to get the 6-digit login code: through the app on the main device, through a text message, or through a phone call.

Once you enter the 6-digit login code that you got on your main device, you’ll be able to use your WhatsApp account on another device. As was already said, the feature is only available to a few lucky Android beta testers. WhatsApp hasn’t said anything official about the feature, but the security update is likely to be included in the next build.
