There are a lot of people who are constantly searching for ways you can hack someone’s WhatsApp.
WhatsApp is acting used by over a billion people, it has become an important part of our daily life since we exchange personal messages, business transactions, over WhatsApp.
So it is obvious for people to be curious if they can get a hold of someone WhatsApp account so that they know what the person he is up to. It’s human nature.
Since we are a tech blog, we are here to let you guys know what can and what can’t be done.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about if there is a possibility to hack a Facebook account, and it has been getting a lot of visitors from people who are searching for the possibility of hacking someone’s Facebook account.
Yes, You can hack someone’s WhatsApp account
You surely can, if you are a computer genius or a hacker who has earlier done some kind of Shady work, such as transferring money from someone’s account or has done similar kind of stuff.
But, you have got to understand that there are different kinds of hacks. And the hack that I am talking about is about reading someone’s messages.
I will try to explain it in simple English.
WhatsApp claims that their messages have an end to end encryption, but the messages do get stored on a remote server because you have the ability to retrieve the data you have deleted (which is the recent development in Whatsapp’s list of features).
So, any data that is stored on a remote server, has a threat of getting leaked. And some computer genius can get into stuff like this, but it is way out of reach of a normal computer guy.
You can actually trick someone to access their WhatsApp account.
But this will only happen when the user is a completely no and does not know much about technology. And there are no hacking tools involved.
You can actually use WhatsApp on the feature called WhatsApp web, that lets you scan a QR code and Mirrors someone’s Whatsapp account on a computer, you get the ability to read messages and send messages.
And there are a number of apps available in the Play Store that have tagged the WhatsApp web its features into an application, which makes it easier for you to do it even on a smartphone.
But even this will notify the WhatsApp by showing them on notification in a notification panel that the WhatsApp web is currently active.
Also, the WhatsApp user has got the ability to log out remotely out of all the WhatsApp web sessions.
If you are someone who is at the receiving end, meaning if someone tries something like this on you, now you know how you can find out how you can secure your WhatsApp account from getting hacked.
