WhatsApp has attracted its fair share of criticism from governments and law enforcement who don’t like its seriously tough encryption, because they can’t snoop.

This begs the question can WhatsApp actually be hacked? 

Apparently it’s quite simple as long as you know the contact number of the account you want to hack, not that we’re suggesting you do want to hack a WhatsApp account.

There are a number of software tools that enable this.
  • You can go to your phones app store and search for apps such as WhatsApp Sniffer Tool.
  • You then simply open the app, enter the person's number and wait for the process to complete.
  • This can take a few minutes and then you simply click on the ‘Verify’ or similar option.
  • You should now be able to access messages, images and videos stored from the last 30 days.

However, these types of apps only work when both the devices are connected to the same Wi Fi network and both devices are close to each other.
