Hack WhatsApp Messages
With more than 1.3 billion users globally, WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps in the world. With WhatsApp, users can send text messages, pictures, and emojis to each other, as well as making voice calls and sharing video. Nearly everyone has WhatsApp installed on their phone, and many people prefer it as their favorite way of staying in touch.
WhatsApp has end-to-end encryption to keep messages more private and less susceptible to hacking than other messaging platforms. However, that doesn't mean that there aren't ways to hack WhatsApp messages if you want to.
If You Have Access to the Target’s Phone
Use a Spying App
There are a number of apps that can be installed on the target’s phone that will allow you to spy on their WhatsApp activity. Apps like Spy for WhatsApp, MySpy, and SpyMaster Pro will allow you to spy on someone’s WhatsApp activity.
You will need to install the spy app on the target phone. If you do not want the target to know that their WhatsApp activity is being observed, you will want to choose an app with a “stealth mode” feature. You often need to disable any anti-virus software that is running on the phone as well, as it may prevent your spying app from running properly.
Remember that these apps will not allow you actually hack a WhatsApp password. They will simply allow you to observe all the WhatsApp activity on the target phone.
Hack the Web Version of WhatsApp
WhatsApp has an online version with the same messages and information as the app in your target’s phone. If you can hack the web version of WhatsApp, you can read the target person’s messages without ever looking at their phone, but you will need quick access to their phone to do it.
- Go to web.WhatsApp.com
- From the menu, choose “request desktop site”
- The web page will show a QR code to sync the website with the mobile device.
- Use your target’s phone to scan the QR code and sync the website with the app.
- Their mobile version of the app will remain synced with the website until you log out of the website.
This is a quick and simple method to spy on someone’s WhatsApp activity without them knowing, provide you have access to their phone for a moment to scan the QR code. It also gives you ongoing, long-term access to spy on WhatsApp.
Spoof their Mac address
This method is a bit complicated, and requires brief access to the target’s phone, but is invisible to them once it’s done.
- Firstly, a phone can have only one installation of WhatsApp, so you need to uninstall it on your own phone. Make sure to back up our own WhatsApp, so you can restore it when you are done. You could also use specialized software to have two parallel installations of WhatsApp on the same device, but that is more complicated and not covered here.
- Get the Mac address of the target phone. It will be in Settings – General – About – WiFi Addresses. Write it down.
- Identify the Mac address of your own phone, and write it down as well.
- Install a spoofing app on your phone. Apps like Android Emulator will emulate for you.
- Use the spoofing app to change the Mac address on your phone to the Mac address of the target phone.
- Download a new install of WhatsApp on your phone
- During installation, enter the target phone number in the WhatsApp setup screen
- WhatsApp will send a verification code to the target phone (not to your phone). You have to retrieve the code from the target phone, and then delete the message from that phone.
- Enter the verification code from the target’s phone into your own installation of WhatsApp. Then you can access their WhatsApp account from WhatsApp installed on your own device. You can read and even send messages as them.
- When you are done browsing their WhatsApp, use the spoofing app to revert to your own Mac address to prevent connection problems.
If you plan on doing this on a repeated basis, it is a good idea to permanently change your Mac address to something similar to your target’s address. That way it can easily be perceived as being a simple mistake or coincidence.
As you can see, using this method you will need access to the target’s iPhone twice. Once to retrieve their Mac address, and a second time to intercept the WhatsApp verification code for your new install. However, these moments can be brief, and you can time them in the way that suits you best, since you don’t need prolonged access to their phone, and you aren’t installing any apps on it.
If you have Access to the Target’s Phone Credentials
Monitor WhatsApp activity from a backup
Backup recovery apps will allow you to view and monitor WhatsApp activity without installing anything on the target device, through backups made in the cloud. You can use these apps, or in some cases you can even log directly into the target’s phone carrier account online, and retrieve stored WhatsApp data. A recovery app like dr.fone can also retrieve data that has been deleted and restore it for your review. In most of these cases, you will need the target person’s credentials in order to access the backup and review their WhatsApp data.
If You Don’t Have Access to Their Credentials
Use an online tool
Websites like wapphacker.com will attempt to hack a WhatsApp account using only the target person’s phone number. You provide the number, the data you want to retrieve, and the time period, and the website will attempt to hack that WhatsApp account and send you the desired data.
There are other, more complicated ways to break the WhatsApp encryption and spy on messages exchanged in the app, but these are the simplest and least expensive ways to hack WhatsApp.
