Why do I need to activate my WhatsApp account when transferring?

To protect your account, WhatsApp will send you a push notification with verification code. This is how WhatsApp helps to keep your account safe.

To transfer data between different devices, MobileTrans will install a modified WhatsApp on your source phone, so it can have access to the WhatsApp data on the source phone. So to activate the modified WhatsApp, it requires to verify your account. Also, when you transfer data to the target phone, you will need to install and activate WhatsApp on the target phone. This will also require the verification. This is why you need to verify your WhatsApp account multiple times.
