According to English news site The Sun, cyber experts have urged all WhatsApp users to check whether they are using WhatsApp at its best settings.

With more than two billion people using Meta-owned WhatsApp, the messenger has become a major target for hackers, scammers and miscreants.

Here is the setting

But two cyber experts have revealed ways to stay safe on WhatsApp. According to Tom Davidson, security expert and senior director at cyber firm ‘Lookout’, the most important setting to stay secure on WhatsApp is two-step verification.

This protects you if someone tries to access your messages by configuring your number with another phone or device, Tom told The Sun.

He said that once this setting is on, users are given a notification for a PIN before adding the number to WhatsApp. This provides additional protection in case an unsuspecting person manages to obtain your name and password.

He said that this two-step verification plays an important role when hackers try to access your WhatsApp account.
