Newshub18 :How to hack whatsapp, how to survive
Hackers can steal your personal information with just a phone number. The latest news is that hackers have recently hacked a social media called WhatsApp. WhatsApp is a medium through which many people can communicate with each other free of cost.
Did you know that your friends or colleagues can easily hack your WhatsApp account through social engineering?
They don’t need anything special to hack your WhatsApp account. It only takes two things to hack the account, 1) you need to know the mobile number of the WhatsApp account and 2) you need to look at the screen of the phone.
Your account has been hacked. This gives the hacker access to all your personal messages and call lists.
He does not need to unlock the phone to hack your WhatsApp account, you do not need to know the password or email address of your WhatsApp account.
What, wondering? Yes, hacking WhatsApp accounts is so easy.
Find out now how you can be a victim of this hacking. You can create a demo WhatsApp account and try the following method to hack it.
To do this hack, first install the WhatsApp app on your phone. If you already have the app installed on your phone, uninstall it.
Now wait for the opportunity, when the target (whose account will be hacked) will be away from his phone for some time so that you can take a look at the screen of his phone.
Suppose the target leaves his set and goes to the bathroom or somewhere else. Open WhatsApp on your set without delay. After opening WhatsApp will ask you to enter the number. Here you will give the account number of the target. After entering the number, a six digit confirmation code will be sent to the target phone. Since text-message previews are enabled by default on all current Android and iPhones, you can see the code sent in the message even if the phone is locked. Now you have to memorize the code by taking a look at the screen of the target phone. After entering this code in your set, his account was hacked. This whole process takes less than ten seconds. Since a WhatsApp account can only be used on one phone, Target will lose access to his account and you can also transfer all his messages, call lists to your Google Drive.
Worried about privacy or not. No, don’t panic. Below we discuss how to protect yourself from this hack. Keep reading.The easiest way to survive this hack is to attach a PIN number to your WhatsApp account. WhatsApp calls it two-step verification.
To do this, first go to the settings of Whatsapp. Then click on the option that says Account here. Then click on the Two-Step Verification option from there. After clicking you will be asked to create a six digit PIN number. This is your two-step verification PIN.
To use your WhatsApp account on another phone, you need to enter this PIN, otherwise you will not be able to use this account on any other phone.
You will also add an email address here, so that you can recover lost PINs, and you must disable the SMS-message previews option from the phone’s lock screen.
