Scammers impersonating as WhatsApp to hack into user accounts

May 28, 2020 18:33 IST

There’s a new WhatsApp scam going around in which an account posing as an official contact point for WhatsApp technical team is asking users to share their verification keys. WABetaInfo, the blog that tracks development in the app, highlighted the new scam in a tweet, adding that the popular messaging app “never asks your data or verification codes”. It is also worth noting that the hacker is using the WhatsApp logo in the account’s profile picture to fool people.
