Meta, also responsible for Facebook and Instagram, has developed a profile Exclusive extension for WhatsApp Which can be downloaded from Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and from Meta Open Source itself.
The new tool associated with the browser, like other extensions, aims to increase privacy when using the application on a computer. Therefore, WhatsApp Web now has this mechanism, preventing suspicious access by hackers.
Popular for delivering commercial and even daily utilities, the scanned code that allows the platform to be used on different devices has received more attention. Its ease of use, the need for more communication in the home office, and the alternative to creating posters are some of the great advantages that the public has pointed out. However, not everyone feels protected, because if someone scans a QR code for a page with a virus, their information can be exposed.
And how does the new WhatsApp extension solve this problem?
The new Code Verify extension creates a simultaneous and automatic comparison of the WhatsApp home screen on the web, when you read the series using your cell phone’s camera. This creates an extra layer of security, and automates the process of deciding who can access the account. Combined with encryption, the technology does not have access to your files, it only alerts you about illegal links that are not linked to the official system.
When you download it for free, an access icon will appear near the search bar and the checker will start working automatically. If the page is suspicious, you will get an instant notification on your screen and pay attention to the colors.
Red flags indicate something is wrong with the address, indicating scams and failures, while yellow flags are medium risk, so don’t continue to log in. When you see a green light, you can be sure that the code is correct and your data will be protected.
