Big danger on WhatsApp! Hackers are tampering with your photo-videos including chat

Due to the lockdown across the country, people are connected to each other through social media. In this, WhatsApp is a platform that hardly anyone is using, and hackers are taking advantage of it. According to the Telegraph report, on WhatsApp, hackers are carrying out an activity called ‘social hacking’, in which they are blaming themselves as a friend, relative of the user.

For social hacking, the hacker needs a 6-digit security verification code, which the user receives via SMS on the phone.

In a social hacking attack, hackers use an already hacked account to contact victims. In this, he presents himself as if he is a good friend of his identity.This is how hacking is done

When the hacker assures his victim that he is a friend of his acquaintance, the hacker tells his victim that he is having trouble logging his WhatsApp account. Further, he says that this is happening due to not receiving the one-time code. The hacker tells his victim that because of not getting the code, he has sent his 6-digit code to him.

But that code is actually for the user’s account, but in a hurry many times the user does not understand it and he tells the code of 6 digits to that hacker. Then as soon as the hacker gets his code, he takes full access to the user’s account. Hacking and accessing WhatsApp, hackers can misuse user’s chat, videos, photos, and sometimes it also increases the risk of blackmailing.

For information, let us tell you that this type of hacking has happened many times before, but the use of WhatsApp by people in the United Kingdom is increasing rapidly, due to which there are increasing complaints of hacking.
