The company has released a note to the customers on how the verification process works on the app. “If you have two-step verification enabled, your number will not be permitted to reverify on the app within 7 days of last using WhatsApp without your passcode. Thus, if you forget your own passcode, but did not provide an email to disable two-step verification, even you will not be permitted to reverify on the app within 7 days of last using it.”.

The note even mentioned the importance of the passcode that will be generated during the process of verification. “After these 7 days, your number will be permitted to reverify on the app without your passcode, but you will lose all pending messages upon reverifying – they will be deleted. If your number is reverified on WhatsApp after 30 days of last using the app, and without your passcode, your account will be deleted and a new one will be created upon successfully reverifying”.
