Whenever we are going to install WhatsApp on a new device, we would have to make sure we have a way to “take care” of our data. In order to do so, we have the possibility of enable the authentication from two factors on WhatsApp for Android.

Thanks to this two-factor authentication of WhatsApp, every time we want to install the app on a new device or reinstall it on it, it will ask us for a six-digit PIN that is unique and that only we should know.

In this way, we can make sure, in no way will our account be accessed. It is a very interesting method to protect the privacy of our data and conversations. The best of all is that it is very easy to do and we are going to see a little below all the steps that we must follow to have two-factor authentication activated on Android.
