WhatsApp warning over scam that allows criminals to lock account and access messages – The Independent

“This six-digit code is only ever created when you are attempting to log in or make modifications to an account.If you do send out the code, the attack will be successful and the hacker will

gain access to your account.One WhatsApp user, whose relatives had been targeted by the fraud, published on Twitter:” Three members of my family have actually lost access to their WhatsApp this early morning.”Hackers send a text message from WA with a confirmation code, then a WhatsApp text from someone you know saying they frantically need the code. To protect your account, never offer your six-digit code out to anyone else, under any situations.
