WhatsApp To Allow Email Log-in Without Mobile Phone Number

WhatsApp is testing a new feature that will allow users to log in with an email address.

The feature will let users add their email address to the app on iOS and Android smartphones, as the messaging platform continues to work on adding an alternative method of logging in to an account.

WhatsApp currently allows users to log in to their account by entering their phone number and receiving a one-time password (OTP) and this can come in handy when a user is travelling and does not have an international roaming mobile plan.

On the messaging app’s beta for iOS and beta for Android, the Meta-run messaging service is allowing users to enter their email address and verify it, as an alternative method of logging in to their account.

Users are also informed that their email will remain private and will not be shown to other users.
