After a security breach was discovered last month in WhatsApp that allowed Facebook to intercept messages, the messenger application’s security has been put in question. Now, Facebook released a security update in order to prevent WhatsApp from being breached.

The update helps prevent people from breaching a WhatsApp account even if they have a password. During the activation, a 2-step verification process will be required. A 6-digit passcode will be sent to the user’s device (or email) for a more secure verification and must be confirmed every week.

In order to activate the verification, one must download the most updated version. Go to settings, account, and enable the two-step verification.
