The messaging application WhatsApp is now a part of our daily lives. While the protection of personal data while on the app was a major issue, now reports of WhatsApp being hacked have made it even more serious.

According to the private magazine, it has recently come to light that hackers want to block the accounts of more than two billion WhatsApp users around the world and steal their private data. There is a danger that at any time you or any of your friends may be hacked.

Technology experts have come up with some tips to prevent hacking, which will prevent hackers from stealing your personal data and damaging the contacts on your private account.

If your account is hacked, send a message to support@whatsapp.com informing the Twitter app that your personal account has been hacked. Mention the phone number on your account in the email.

Delete the application, download it, then try logging in again and repeat this process several times a day to confuse hackers.

People keep trying to log in to their accounts.

Tell your friends and family by text message or phone call that your account has been hacked and ask them not to reply to any messages from your hacked account.

If you haven’t already, turn on WhatsApp’s two-step verification feature.

Turn on the dual feature by entering your personal phone number in the data field of the application. If someone tries to hack the phone, the application will send you a six-digit code, so you can guess that someone is trying to hack and block your phone.

After the WhatsApp account is suspended, the app gives its users 30 days in which users can restore their files and media, after which this data is permanently deleted from the app’s backup.
