Following the popularity and hype of Clubhouse, an audio only social media app, everyone wants to jump into this audio only concept. We’ve seen Facebook Audio Rooms, Twitter spaces, Telegram voice chats and even LinkedIn is reportedly working on Live Audio rooms.

Instagram 2FA with WhatsApp

Instagram is working on a new feature that will allow you to integrate Facebook owned WhatsApp with Instagram. In a new finding by Alessandro Paluzzi, he discovered that Instagram is working to receive the Two-Factor Authentication code on WhatsApp.

He shared a screenshot where we can clearly see that Instagram added “WhatsApp” as an option “How You Get Authentication Codes” section of Two-Factor Authentication. As per the screenshot, the WhatsApp feature can only be enabled when the SMS authentication is already enabled.

I think Instagram is planning to send the Two Factor Authentication code to both SMS and WhatsApp to improve the user experience. If a user is not able to access their phone, they can use WhatsApp to authenticate the Two factor Authentication page.
