🔐 WhatsApp users are facing a resurgence of sneaky hacks that compromise their accounts.
📅 Two years ago, a massive worldwide hack via WhatsApp calls made headlines, and now hackers are finding even more insidious ways to breach security.
💼 Hackers are using methods like malware-laden spam messages, call-forwarding tricks, and even the new multi-device feature to gain unauthorized access.
📞 The call-forwarding hack involves tricking victims into calling specific MMI codes that reroute calls to the hacker's number, aiding them in account takeover.
🚀 WhatsApp's feature allowing one account on four devices opens up new opportunities for malicious access.
🔒 Protect your account with 2-factor authentication (2FA) and stay cautious about sharing codes or clicking suspicious links.
📢 As WhatsApp expands into communities and channels, user phone numbers become more exposed, making vigilance essential in safeguarding your account.
🛡️ While WhatsApp actively patches vulnerabilities, users must stay updated to benefit from the latest security measures.
Stay safe from WhatsApp hacks by staying informed and using 2FA!
