Hacked WhatsApp…here is a solution

There has been many people i have come across who have been hacked. In most cases, the hacker will start sending “investment” adverts to the victim’s WhatsApp groups.

Today, i will share with you how you can protect your account from being hacked.

Here are the basic tips:

  1. Never, and i mean never, share you whatsapp verification code. A new trend has emerged, the hacker may send you a whatsapp message, using your friend’s or family member’s number (which would have been hacked also) and try to convince you to send them a code that has been sent to you. What you must know is that sometimes, the WhatsApp verification SMS may come from a USA number (starting with +1), or just from a contact called “Verification” or a contact called “Bond SMS” or even “WhatsApp”…….just like you receive messages from “Econet” , “NetOne”, “Telecel” etc. So, whenever you receive any six digit code, never share it with anyone, not even your girlfriend, or spouse, that might just be a hacker who has gained access to their phone.
  2. If your phone as a finderprint, protect your whatsapp with a finder print, this makes it impossible for someone you do not know to use your phone and login to whatsapp web.
  3. MOST IMPORTANTLY: ACTIVATE the 2 step-verification. This option sets an extra code to protrct your whatsapp account… this is a verification code you set yourself and don’t worry, you will not forget it because WhatsApp will keep reminding you! This is how you do it:
  4. Enable two-step verification: This adds an extra layer of protection by requiring a six-digit PIN in addition to your phone number when registering or re-registering your WhatsApp account on a new device. To enable two-step verification, follow these steps: Open WhatsApp and tap the three dots icon in the top right corner; Select “Settings” > “Account” > “Two-step verification; “Tap “Enable” and enter a six-digit PIN of your choice; Confirm your PIN and enter an email address to recover your PIN if you forget it.
