WhatsApp Web users who chat with their friends through a computer will have the possibility to verify that nobody is spying on them, thanks to an extension that Meta (formerly Facebook) has just launched for browsers Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.
According to Xataka, a specialized technology portal, the extension developed by Mark Zuckerberg’s company works as an extra security layer for users who will be able to know the authenticity of the code that the browser receives when they enter WhatsApp Web.

The name of this extension is Code Verify and it is available in the Chrome Web Store (for Google Chrome users) and the Microsoft Store (for people using Microsoft Edge). Meta plans to release a version for Mozilla Firefox, another very popular browser, very soon.
How is Code Verify used?
Go to its official page, depending on your browser, and install Code Verify. After a few seconds, the icon of this extension will appear in the upper right corner. Now enter WhatsApp Web for the software to do its job.
If the Code Verify icon changes color to green, that means everything is working fine and there is no problem. If it looks yellow, the extension has detected interference, so it is recommended to refresh the page.
Finally, if the icon turns red, this means that there is a security problem in the code that WhatsApp Web sends you that can be solved with the help of Code Verify.
