Furthermore, the researchers also added that iOS users should avoid to log on to any unauthorized websites as it can open ways for hackers and will make it so easy to get access to users’ photos, location, and other important content through their WhatsApp chats.
Of course, this is such shocking news for every WhatsApp user, as there are over 1.5 billion users across the globe who use this messaging app every month. WhatsApp always claims that it is providing a safe and secure messaging platform that banks on end to end encryption. However, the recent revelations put all the WhatsApp users in the shock across the globe.
Google researcher Ian Beer said:
“Not only is the end-point of the end-to-end encryption offered by messaging apps compromised; the attackers then send all the contents of the end-to-end encrypted messages in plain text over the network to their server.”
It is very important that all the iOS users should upgrade their devices to Apple’s latest operating system which the company has recently introduced. The latest OS system protects users from these security threats.
More importantly, iOS users should always avoid the click on any suspicious emails which might redirect them to an unknown website as it might be possible that via this way hackers can easily hack the devices.
