Whatsapp hacking: the new method hackers are using

  • If you receive a message on your phone explaining that an error has been made and that you have received a message containing a code from another person allowing them to connect to Whatsapp, above all, do not disclose this code.
  • “Hey, I accidentally sent a Whatsapp verification code to your phone. Can you send it to me?” 
    • If a victim responds to this message with the code they received by text message, the perpetrators are in possession of the victims telephone number, and also of the identity verification code.
