WhatsApp's New Password Reminder Feature Brings Better User Experience

WhatsApp's New Password Reminder Feature Brings Better User

WhatsApp Password Reminder Feature

The WhatsApp password reminder feature helps you easily access your WhatsApp account if you have forgotten your password. 

To use this feature, you will need to provide your verified mobile phone number that is associated with your WhatsApp account.

Once you have entered your mobile number, you will receive an SMS with a link to reset your password by following the on-screen instructions. 

Interestingly, WhatsApp has been offering many features ever since the company had privacy problems in the last few years.

It is based on this development that a brand-new feature aimed at improving data security has recently been added to WhatsApp.

WhatsApp has been favoured for secure communication for a long time due to its end-to-end encryption capabilities.

However, the platform's cloud backups were not encrypted until September 2021, posing a potential security risk.

To address this worry, Meta, the parent organisation of WhatsApp, acquainted scrambled reinforcements with Google Drive, which could be safeguarded with a secret word.

The platform has focused on offering more and more privacy-related features ever since it lost some users because of security concerns.

WhatsApp, therefore, launched a password reminder feature to address this issue.

Under this arrangement, a client will be prompted to enter their 64-digit key or secret key from the start to finish of scrambled reinforcement in the wake of refreshing to the most recent variant of the application.

The app can only be accessed by entering the correct password or turning off encrypted backups.

How this feature will serve is going to help users have a better experience.

In case users have already forgotten their WhatsApp backup’s encrypted password and encounter the reminder, they can choose to disable encrypted backups.
