Texting is expanding the danger of hacking on WhatsApp. In such a circumstance,users need to be more vigilant about security and privacy.

Follow these steps to keep WhatsApp safe
You must have heard about two-step verification of WhatsApp. You can keep your account safe by activating it. In such a situation, whenever you login your account or try to run the account in another phone, you will have to enter this 6 digit passcode.
Perform two-step verification like this:
- For this, you have to go to WhatsApp settings.
- After this, you have to go to the account section and tap on the option of two-step verification.
- Now you have to enter a 6 digit PIN.
- After confirming this, you will have to enter your email address.
