Looking to switch to AiSensy from your current WhatsApp Business API provider?

Great decision!!

Before we begin, here are three pre-requisites you must meet to migrate from your existing WhatsApp API provider to AiSensy:

  • Ensure your WhatsApp Business Display name is approved

  • 2-Factor Authentication must be disabled

  • Your WhatsApp Business API number should be available for OTP verification

In this document, we'll cover how to:

  • Disable 2-factor authentication of your current WhatsApp API provider

  • Migrate to AiSensy from your current WhatsApp API provider

Let's discuss both of these parts in detail.

Steps to Disable 2-Factor Authentication

1. Go to Facebook Business Settings & click 'WhatsApp accounts'

First, go to Business Settings in your Facebook Business Manager by clicking this link - https://business.facebook.com/settings/

Now, click on WhatsApp accounts & choose the WhatsApp Business API account you wish to migrate to AiSensy.

2. Go to Settings & click WhatsApp Manager

Next, in WhatsApp Accounts, go to settings as shown in the below image.

Here, you need to verify that your WhatsApp API provider is listed under the Payment Method.

If it's not there, don't worry! You can continue to the next step.

Now click on WhatsApp Manager.

3. Click the link under the Phone number

Now, you need to choose the Phone number you wish to migrate.

If you have multiple WhatsApp Business API accounts, choose the one you wish to migrate to AiSensy.

Note: If the phone number is not visible, go to your WhatsApp Business API provider & ask them to disable the 2-factor verification from their end.

4. Verify your Profile

Next up, verify your profile & click Two-step verification to disable 2FA.

5. Turn off the Two-step verification

Under two-step verification, click Turn off two-step verification to disable the 2 FA.

In case the Turnoff two-step verification button is greyed out, follow the step mentioned in the next section.

6. Click the link received in your Business Mail

After clicking Turn off two-step verification, you'll receive an email on your registered email ID.

Find the link to disable 2-factor authentication in your registered email ID.

7. Click disable 2FA

Disable the 2-factor authentication by clicking the button Turn off two-step verification.

8. Connect with AiSensy Support once done

Once the 2FA is disabled successfully, connect with AiSensy support via Call, WhatsApp & email to complete the migration process.

What to do if the "Turn off two-step Verification" button is greyed out?

If you haven't verified your email in Business settings, you might find the Turn-off two-step Verification button greyed out.

To enable it, you need to verify your email.

Click the verification link that'll show on the page to enable the button.

After verifying your email, you'll see the 2-Factor Authentication button enabled.

Once the 2-step verification is disabled, you can easily migrate to the AiSensy platform by following the steps listed below👇
