WhatsApp is not 100% infallible against attacks and espionage

How to spy on WhatsApp for free

As I said at the beginning, spying on WhatsApp is not as easy as it used to be. Until the application introduced end-to-end encryption into its chats, anyone connected to our Wi-Fi network, with the necessary tools, could access the content of our messages sent and received simply by analyzing the traffic of the network in question. Luckily, this method no longer works and attackers must seek other, more complex avenues as they try to capture their victims' messages.

WhatsApp Web is one of the most used tools when it comes to spying on WhatsApp conversations.

It wouldn't be the first time that WhatsApp Web is at the center of controversy because of security breaches that allow attackers to access chat content, or even to introduce malware on their victims' computers.

But beyond the vulnerabilities it could have, the simple fact of working through the browser, associated with a WhatsApp account, makes WhatsApp Web one of the most used ways to spy on WhatsApp chats. And you just need to log into WhatsApp on a computer, to access all conversations, both current and previous, with all your shared messages and files.

In addition to this, WhatsApp sends a notification to the mobile only when it is logged in for the first time, so that if the person who wants to spy on us cancels that notification, we won't know if anyone is reading our messages through the web version of the messaging app.

How to avoid it: to avoid spying on your WhatsApp via the web version, access the "WhatsApp Web" section of the application on your mobile and check which devices you are logged in on. If you see a suspicious computer, you can tap it to log out and remove access to your messages.

Spy on WhatsApp using WhatsApp backups

Although it is not a simple technique like WhatsApp Web, as explained in AdslZone, It is also possible to spy on WhatsApp conversations through the backup copies that the app creates of our conversations. For this there are specific tools and software that allow you to decrypt backup packages and thus access their content.

How to avoid it: For some years now, WhatsApp backups have been stored in Google Drive. This adds an extra layer of security. Also, to access the copies, the attacker should have the passcode that WhatsApp sends via SMS when connecting to a new device. Hence, it is so important to ignore the messages asking us for this type of verification codes.

Unfortunately, over the years, more and more have emerged tools designed to spy on WhatsApp conversations.

However, it is also necessary to remember that a good number of these tools not only fail to fulfill their function, but they can also pose a risk to those who use them.

In fact, it would not be the first time that the State Security Forces have reported scams disguised as this type of software.

We must also remember, once again, that using this type of application to spy on WhatsApp is illegal.
