[br][br]With the introduction of [strong]WhatsApp[/strong], we all got an ideal alternative for text messaging.[br][br]The platform offers a range of features and is used by more than a billion users, meaning you can use it to connect with almost anybody.[br][br]However, just like all web-based services, even WhatsApp faces the risk of hacking or phishing.[br][br]Here's how you can prevent that.[br][br][strong]Tip-1[/strong][br][br][strong]Enable [/strong][strong]two-step[/strong][strong] verification[/strong][br][br]WhatsApp login depends on SMS or call-based verification.[br][br]However, we've seen hackers using different techniques (like voicemail hijacking) to steal the verification code.[br][br]Now, this issue can only be avoided by enabling two-factor authentication and setting a six-digit PIN.[br][br][br][br]It would act as an additional line of security and can be enabled by heading over to [strong]Menu > Settings > Account > [/strong][strong]Two-step[/strong][strong] verification.[/strong][br][br][strong]Tip-2[/strong][br][br][strong]Enable biometric security to keep chats hidden[/strong][br][br]Many sneaky attackers could get their hands on your phone and try to snoop on your WhatsApp to read, even steal, your private chats.[br][br]As you won't even see this attack coming, it's important to turn on [strong]biometric security lock[/strong].[br][br][br][br]iOS users can do this from  [strong]Settings > Account > Privacy > Screen Lock[/strong], while Android users would have to use a third-party app.[br][br][strong]Tip-3[/strong][br][br][strong]Be careful on WhatsApp Web[/strong][br][br][br][br][strong]WhatsApp Web[/strong] lets you read and reply to messages without touching your smartphone.[br][br]The feature comes handy but can also be misused, especially in the case of shared systems.[br][br]Basically, a third-party using the same PC could open WhatsApp Web and get easy access to all your messages.[br][br]So, use the feature carefully and log out of all sessions, whenever necessary.[br][br][strong]Tip-4[/strong][br][br][strong]Stay away from scams or fancy versions of WhatsApp[/strong][br][br]No matter how many settings you tweak to make WhatsApp secure, the risk of scams always remains.[br][br]People can fool you into giving away your details or push malware to your phone by claiming to offer something like [strong]WhatsApp's[/strong][strong] premium 'Gold' version.[/strong][br][br][br][br]So, watch out for strange messages offering lucrative deals and block their senders; also look for the 'forwarded' badge to verify authenticity.[br][br][strong]Tip-5[/strong][br][br][strong]Finally, restrict profile image access[/strong][br][br][br][br]On WhatsApp, anyone with your contact can see your account and send direct messages.[br][br]The feature is useful, but in some cases, hijackers could use numbers accessed from different sources to identify potential targets.[br][br]They could use your profile picture to know more about you (maybe for social engineering), but this can be avoided by changing profile photo access to contacts from [strong]Settings>Account>[img src="static/image/smiley/default/titter.gif" smilieid="9" border="0" alt=""]rivacy>[img src="static/image/smiley/default/titter.gif" smilieid="9" border="0" alt=""]rofile Photo.[/strong][br][br][strong]Also, [/strong][strong]keep[/strong][strong] an eye on security codes[/strong][br][br]As an additional step, while chatting, make sure that the security code for the chat matches with that of the other person. This is a sign of end-to-end encryption and can be verified by opening contact info in chat and selecting [strong]"Encryption".[/strong][br][div][strong][br][/strong][/div][h5][strong]              'Be Secure and safe'[/strong][/h5][p][strong]Comment your opinions.
