THE Whatsapp is close to releasing the feature of ‘multiple connected devices‘, which will allow users to use their account on more than one device, without having to be connected via smartphone. However, this brings a security issue, which can be a way for malicious users to apply scams, to prevent these problems, the Facebook is developing the support for 2-step verification on desktop versions.
As informed by WABetaInfo, the portal that always brings the platform’s news, this type of security technology is very necessary on the platform, mainly because many people use it for communication and work. Because of this, the app is one of the main targets of attacks and scams.
Currently the Whatsapp, even having already increased the security level, is seeing a considerable increase in the number of scams performed on the platform. This ends up causing the platform to look for ways to keep users less susceptible to these scams, and soon, 2-step verification on the web and desktop versions should help with this.

This feature will not only work with the new feature of multiple devices using the same account, with the app developing the novelty to work normally even with the ‘multiple devices‘ disabled. But with this new feature coming out of beta, users could be even more exposed, so she’s already getting ready to fight criminals.
Unfortunately, it was not informed when this feature will be released, nor how it will work when it is ready. But the WABetaInfo points out that the technology will generate a pin for the user when registering an account in the app, with it being necessary to be able to enter other devices in the futureand.
Currently the messaging app of Facebook has been working on a series of novelties for its users, in addition to ‘multiple devices’ and ‘two-step verification’, the platform has also changed the sending of audios, allowing recording to be paused even on computers, and improving payment on the platform .
