Whatsapp calls itself completely encrypted but it does not make it un-hackable. Being the most widely used chat app, WhatsApp has all sorts of messages, including your personal ones, which you can not be comfortable sharing with others.

What will happen if your WhatsApp account is hacked? 

Although WhatsApp can be hacked to a certain extent, we do not have to tell you how bad hacking can be for you. Once hacked, the hacker can keep an eye on you like when you come to online Whatsapp, your sleeping patterns, your online activity and much more.

Hackers can access their WhatsApp data through various means, such as via WhatsApp or register their number on any other device. Whatsapp can not work on two phones at the same time, but if hackers register their numbers on any other device, they can catch all your chats easily.
Hackers can immediately scan your Whatsapp QR code and access your WhatsApp conversation from anywhere in the world. However, hackers need to make physical use of your phone to access the QR code.

To know whether your Whatsapp web is active on an unknown device, go to the three points given in the upper right corner of your Whatsapp window. Visit the Whatsapp web and see the list of all open sessions. This will allow you to see all the devices connected to your WhatsApp.

If you are seeing a message that "This phone could not be verified", it means that your Whatsapp is also accessing by any unknown device.

There is also third-party software available on the web that can be used by hackers to roam your WhatsApp messages.

Tips to prevent hacking your whitespace:

- Log out of all the computers appearing in the list under the WhatSweep Web. This will prevent hackers from reading your chats further. However, this should be done every time you use the Whatsapp web.

- Do not leave your phone while you are out.

- Lock all your apps to prevent unknown people from accessing your apps.

- Do not connect your phone to an unknown WiFi connection because Hackers can also use a unique MAC address to access all your WhatsApp Chat.

- If your WhatsApp has already been hacked, deactivate your account by emailing to [email protected] Your account will be automatically deleted after reaching 30 days.

- Enable 2 step verification under Whatsapp account settings. This will add an extra layer of security on the app.
