Is Your WhatsApp Account Secure?

Hackers are now working more tirelessly ever than before to break into computers, computer networks, and WhatsApp accounts of others. They try to hack your number to perform their fraudulent activities. Numerous accounts have been hacked and the number is growing by the day. You probably know of someone whose WhatsApp account has been hacked. Do not become the next victim!

How do they hack WhatsApp number?

A number of ways have been reported and more other methods are being used almost on a daily basis. Just be vigilant and sensitive. For example

A strange number might call you and mention a group on WhatsApp where you serve as the member. The fellow will tell you that there is going to be a meeting on the platform soonest and you will be given a code to participate in the meeting or discussion. You will later receive a code on your line. As soon as you entered the code, your WhatsApp number has been hacked.

The victim’s number on WhatsApp platforms would have been removed and replaced with that of the fraudster.

As soon as this happens, the fraudster now represents the victim in all the WhatsApp groups he/she belongs. However, the WhatsApp account is still carrying your name and your picture will still be appearing in all platform. Nothing really has changed but your number and the fact that you don’t have access. The hacker would be sending fraudulent messages in your name and picture. These evil people exploit people on your list and they might fall for their tricks based on your integrity and reputation without confirming from you with a call.
