Apart from live chat, mesmerising features like sharing media and other data are key features that allows WhatsApp to hold number of users with it. Although everything is quite handy in WhatsApp, but there’s a small security loop hole that will allow you to access someone else WhatsApp account.
For iPhone users – Never share your MAC address :
Each WhatsApp account on iPhone is associated with unique MAC(Media access control) address as a password. If any one changes his/her device(MAC address also changes), they are requested to re-verify their WhatsApp account. Means you cannot access same WhatsApp account from two devices. But what if you got success in having same MAC address for two devices? You can certainly access same WhatsApp ID from two devices that will help you to have a close look on your friends WhatsApp activity.
For Android users – Never share your IMEI number :
Each WhatsApp account on Android is associated with IMEI(International mobile equipment identity) number as a password. If any one changes his/her device(IMEI number also changes), they are requested to re-verify their WhatsApp account. Means you cannot access same WhatsApp account from two devices. But what if you got success in having same IMEI number for two devices? You might have thought, How IMEI number can be spoofed. So, it’s better not to share your IMEI number.
Secure your SMS app with password :
When someone else tries to spy on your WhatsApp account, WhatsApp send a verification code on your device. If the hacker (probably he would be a known person) got access over this message, his half of the task is completed. So, it’s better to password protect your SMS app.
