Now WhatsApp is working on a new update that will detect a login from a different device and send the account owner a notification to accept or deny the login. Just as Google does with entering Gmail from another computer or unregistered cell phone.

This is because for now the only time the messaging platform asks a user to verify his account is when he downloads and installs the application on a new cell phone, sending a message with a 6-digit code.

But in addition to this new security system, the developers of the platform -owned by Meta- have also been working for some time on incorporating a double code verification system, that is to say that when someone installs the application and registers on a new device, in addition to the already known 6-digit code, they will have to enter a new password that will be sent to them immediately.

Regarding the update to detect suspicious income, it has been the portal WABetaInfo once again the one who has revealed this information, according to them, if the system finds that an attempt is being made to open a session in an illegitimate manner, the creditor of the account will receive a message on his cell phone warning about it.

The news site related to WhatsApp reports that this new verification system is being tested in version for Android, which is in the program Google Play Beta.

Likewise, they indicate that the notification or message will work as a popup that will appear when a user wants to open the WhatsApp account on a certain cell phone. In other words, and as already mentioned, it will be a system similar to the one that emails currently incorporate to notify when the inbox is entered from an unidentified computer.

According to the explorations made in the beta by the technology site, the pop-up window, in addition to warning about a suspicious entry, It will also inform the user of the cell phone model from which they are trying to enter and the time the action is taking place.

With this data, the owner of the account will be able to know if it is the other device from which he is trying to enter or if, on the contrary, it is an attempt to hack his WhatsApp, and thus he will be able to allow or deny access.

However, WABetaInfo has indicated that this new functionality is still in the development stage, so it is not available to beta testers and there is no clear date for its official release for all users, because it is not even known if one day it will be incorporated.
