Hi,

Here are some advices to keep your WhatsApp account secure:

  • Always use the latest version of WhatsApp;
  • Never share your WhatsApp confirmation codes and links;
  • Set a password / PIN code to your phone;
  • Enable the 2-factor authentication for extra security;
  • If you didn't requested a WhatsApp code, never use it and never click the link;
  • Avoid third-party apps that can access to your WhatsApp account;
  • Log out of WhatsApp Web / Desktop once you finished using your account, especially on shared computers. For your own computer, you can stay logged in but make sure it is secured by a password.

By following the above recommendations, your account will be protected against hacking and any other unauthorized use. If you believe that your WhatsApp account has been stolen, see this page for the steps to regain control of your account.

Good luck
