As the WhatsApp usage has grown with up to 40% worldwide, we also see a surge in cyber crime. Not only phishing & malware. We also notice an alarming WhatsApp hack that has been going around. Some say it’s social engineering at it’s best.
WhatsApp is secure and encrypted, but there is no way for the platform to protect users who don’t secure their own app.
If you have been a victim of this hack here is what you could do:
– Reinstall WhatsApp and ask for a fresh activation code. That will reset the app on your phone.
– Restore your account
– Set up a PIN -number right away (two step authentication pin)
