WhatsApp Launches New Browser Extension

WhatsApp has just launched a new browser extension called Code Verify to check the codes of websites and apps. The extension shows a green icon when it has correctly validated the code. If it displays a red icon, the code is invalid. If this happens, you can click on the button again to revalidate the code or restart your browser.

Code Verify

WhatsApp has launched a new browser extension that checks the security of web pages. The extension checks for any errors and presents them as either an orange or red icon. If the icon is orange, it means there is a security problem, and it is recommended to refresh the page. When the icon is green, there are no issues.

The extension can be installed by visiting the Chrome web store. It is free and only works on Chrome, Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari. The extension works by checking the code of every web page. It compares the code from WhatsApp to a publicly-posted source of truth to detect inconsistencies. If it finds any, it automatically updates the extension with the latest version.

The browser extension is available for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge, and will work with the web app as well. It will check the JavaScript libraries of the web application and display a green scheme if everything checks out, and an orange if something goes wrong. It will help WhatsApp users avoid the pitfalls of malicious websites and web extensions.

Open-source project

A new open-source project for the WhatsApp browser extension has been released. It’s called Code Verify, and it helps users check the integrity of the web code for WhatsApp. The extension is currently available as a Chrome and Edge browser extension, and will soon be available for Firefox and Safari users.

The extension uses a cryptographic hash to check whether the code in WhatsApp Web matches what it is on your computer. It’s flexible enough to adapt to changes in the code, and the hash updates on the fly. That means you don’t have to spend time comparing the two.

The extension is available as an open-source project on GitHub. This allows other companies to use it and share their ideas. The extension is also independent of the WhatsApp infrastructure, which protects its discoverability. The extension also benefits from a vigilant open-source community.

JavaScript code analysis

Code Verify is a browser extension that verifies the integrity of the Web code served by WhatsApp. It works by verifying the integrity of the code of WhatsApp’s web application and warns users of potentially malicious code. The extension is available for Chrome and Edge browsers. WhatsApp plans to distribute extensions for Firefox and Safari in the future.

Code Verify is a browser extension that runs automatically when the WhatsApp Web is open. Once installed, it will display a green circle if the code has been validated and an orange circle with a question mark if the code has not been validated. It uses a process called code analysis to verify the integrity of the web code and notify users if there is a discrepancy.

Code Verify will check the JavaScript code of the WhatsApp Web service. Upon finding errors, it will display an icon in the browser. The icon will change to green, orange, or red depending on the severity of the issue. If the icon turns orange, this means there is a problem with the code. To fix the problem, you can install an update.
