WhatsApp is testing a phone-free way to log into your account during emergencies

As part of a new iOS update, WhatsApp is introducing an alternative login method that allows users to log in by entering their email address.

So far, Meta has not made a formal announcement about the upgrade. We continue to learn about this WABetaInfo. They explain that this tool can be useful if you’re ever in a situation where you don’t have cell service and can’t receive the code via text message. Hints of this upcoming feature were first seen in a beta version early November. However, access was limited to a few people. From now on, iPhone owners can enter their personal email address and receive a six-digit code to log in.
