WhatsApp (WA) has become an everyday tool. To send news, or talk to friends and relatives, almost always will use WA. Either through the chat feature, voice note, or video calling.
However, many people do not realize that their WA has been tapped by people who intend to commit crimes.
To safeguard WA from wiretapping irresponsible persons, you must first determine whether or not WA has been tapped by someone.
Here are 5 characteristics of bugged WhatsApp that need to be recognized:
1. Message Sent Unknowingly
If you recognize a sent message without us realizing it, it can be determined that WhatsApp is being tapped by someone else.
2. WhatsApp Account Log Out Itself
If the WhatsApp account logouts itself, then you must be vigilant. It is very possible that there are parties who tap or hijack your WA account.
3. Self Read Messages
If you see someone else’s incoming message and then there is a sign that it has been read without you realizing it, it means that the hijacker has read the message remotely.
4. Foreign Applications Installed
If suddenly there are foreign applications installed on your smartphone, be extra vigilant. This foreign application could be a tapping application to hijack WhatsApp.
5. WhatsApp Website Suddenly Activates
WhatsApp Website can be operated from 4 different computers, so if this feature activates itself without your knowledge, then this is a sign that your WA is being hijacked.
