If you receive a message one day that one of your contacts changes the security code, don’t get scared or worried over the notification. It is another security system by whatsapp. If you want to know what this security code is all about you can go to contact info or group info. In the info section you will get a 60-dogit code and also a QR code which is said to be your security code of that contact only. You can verify the key with your contact so that you get to know that your conversations are end-to-end encrypted or not.
