In simple words, Code Verify is a traffic light for the security of their WhatsApp Web account.

Whatsapp has launched Code Verify in collaboration with Cloudflare. As per the statement by the company, “Code Verify is also being open-sourced so that other messaging services can enable people to verify that the code they are being served on the web is the same that everyone else is using.”
