#1
Advertisement
There are thieves who are using WhatsApp to steal your personal data like financial details, confidential information, pictures, videos, and even personal chats.

This is how they are doing it:

1. Scrapping the QR code from the WhatsApp Web

2.Posting that scrapped QR Code onto their phishing site/app

3.Asking visitors on their phishing page to scan it from WhatsApp on their phone, in return offering some prize, cash or anything that can lure a user

4.Once the user is done with scanning, these phishing individuals or companies get complete access to the user’s WhatsApp.

So, better to be safe than sorry! It is wise to avoid mails or messages on WhatsApp from unknown people or groups that seem too good to be true, they probably are!
