WhatsApp is one of those apps that a majority of smartphone users have on their phones. The sheer ease that the app brings with it, as far as communicating with others is concerned, is still unmatched by many other apps that are hoping to contend with WhatsApp.
But why does WhatsApp hold more attraction for people when there are so many others of the same kind? The reason is that this is a very stable and consistent app. People use it because they can rely on it. But where security and privacy is concerned, WhatsApp users can face some serious threats, as there are more ways than one to hack into someone’s WhatsApp account.
If You Have Root
The first way to hack into someone’s WhatsApp is to use a tool called WhatsApp Sniffer. This is a program designed to read the WhatsApp conversations of a WiFi network. With this, you can easily hack someone’s WhatsApp conversation, as the tool captures all outgoing and incoming traffic over your target’s WiFi network and delivers them to you.
The only thing making this a difficult way to hack WhatsApp is that you must have a rooted device and that your victim uses the same WiFi network as you.
The second root solution for hacking someone’s WhatsApp is to fool WhatsApp into thinking that you’re using the same device as your target. We all know that WhatsApp doesn’t work on two different phones at the same time. The reason for that is every phone has a different Media Access Control, or MAC, address. You can find out yours by going into your phone’s settings.
The interesting thing is that you can actually change your phone’s MAC address fairly easily if you have a rooted device. If you want to hack someone’s WhatsApp, all you have to do is gain the target device’s MAC address and change yours to match it. Then you simply reinstall WhatsApp on your own phone, and voila! Your new WhatsApp will be a mirror image of your target’s account.
If You Don’t Have Root
If you don’t have a rooted device and would still like to spy on someone’s WhatsApp activities, there’s an easier way to do so. Spy apps are programs that are made for monitoring people’s phone activities. They not only give you access to WhatsApp conversations, but also to SMS messages, phone call logs, location, emails, etc. There is a lot you can do with a reputable spy app like mSpy.
One of the best things about mSpy is that it actually lets you take itself for a test run before you buy it. You get access to all the great features that this app provides for a full week, for free. iPhone users can also rejoice because this is one of those few apps that can grant you access to WhatsApp conversations of someone else’s on iOS as well as Android.
So there you have it. Not only is it possible to crack WhatsApp’s claims of user privacy, it is also fairly simple once you have the necessary tools. Whether you have an Android device or an iPhone, whether it has root access or not, you can be sure that if you want to hack someone’s WhatsApp account, you will be able to.
