WhatsApp Security Tips 2020
In recent time, there has been a rise in the number of WhatsApp Accounts being hijacked on a daily basis… sometimes this happens due to the carelessness of the account owner/user.
First, you need to know that there’s no free money anywhere on the internet and if there is; nobody will want to reveal the secret to you (just to keep it to themselves).
Often times, the victims of these hacks, are being contacted by other strange users who come under the guise of introducing them to a platform that pays 100%, 200% and even 500% of their investments within 45 minutes (quite stupid, yeah?).
Common, only a greedy fellow will fall for such haox.
Long story short, I just want to show you a few steps on how to protect your WhatsApp account from hijackers and share a few tips to know what is real and what is fake.
How to Protect Your WhatsApp Account from Hackers
What I’m about to share is not something new, you probably know about it but haven’t been paying attention to details or probably didn’t take it serious.
Ever heard of “Two-Step-Verification” on WhatsApp? Well, that’s the feature we are going to use to protect your account for good. Just follow the few steps below:
- Launch your WhatsApp Messenger
- Click the 3 dots on the upper-right side of the App
- Click SETTINGS
- Click ACCOUNT
- Click on “Two-step verification”
- Click on the “ENABLE” button
- Enter a six-digits codes you will remember but hard for anyone to guess
- You will be prompt to confirm the six-digits PIN (from step 7 above)
- Next is to enter your “Email” as option to backup recovery
- Click “Next” and re-enter the email to confirm your entry and SAVE.
Congratulations! You have just setup the first step to your WhatsApp Account security.
This WhatsApp Security Tips will be useless if you fall for any message telling you invest and make 100% return investment within 45mins thereby asking you to send your account verification code to get things setup for you.
Staying safe online isn’t just for you alone but for the sake of the people on your contact list not falling victim of online scam thinking messages sent from your account are from you.
