How to change and disable the WhatsApp lock code

WhatsApp lets you edit your application's 2-step verification information at any time. Users can change the code to not forget the combination, or change the registered email for password recovery. In addition, you can completely disable the feature and eliminate PIN requests.

The security system is responsible for requesting the unlock periodically and whenever the app is reinstalled to combat invaders. The feature prevents third parties from accessing your messages even if your phone line is compromised. The procedure for modifying the WhatsApp verification system has been reproduced on a Galaxy S8 with Android 8 Oreo.
