WhatsApp would work on a bunch of security features. According to reports, WhatsApp is currently working on a login approval feature like Instagram. When you log into your WhatsApp account from a new device, you will receive a notification from the messaging app asking you to confirm whether it is you or not. We receive similar notifications when we try to access our Instagram or Facebook account from a new computer. WhatsApp’s next feature will improve platform security.

The new development was first spotted by WhatsApp feature tracker Wabetainfo. The website that first notified all the upcoming features reported that WhatsApp is currently developing a new feature to protect users so they can receive in-app alerts when someone else tries to log in to their accounts.

“When someone else tries to connect to your WhatsApp account, you will have to accept the connection request by approving it. This way, people can finally decline a connection request if someone tries to connect to their account because he wrongly shared his 6-digit code. In addition, this special security alert also reports other useful details, such as the time and other information on the other phone, “says the website.

On a related note, WhatsApp is also working to give group admins more control so they can wield their power well and prevent misinformation from spreading. For this, the group administrator must be more alert and aware of what is happening in the group. Wabetainfo reported that WhatsApp group admins will soon be able to delete messages from all group members. For now, only select beta testers have access to the feature, but WhatsApp may be rolling it out in the coming days. The feature is currently available for beta testers.
