How scams are done

Your account is hacked by OTP Game. For example, you may receive a message from your friend’s number stating that he is in an emergency and needs your help. The hacker will then ask for the OTP number on your number. As soon as you give it a number your account will be logged out of your mobile and the hacker will be able to use that account. Never give an OTP like this and if someone asks for that number, don’t give it to them, otherwise you will be in big trouble.


What after being hacked
If you give OTP and your account is hacked, hackers can misuse your sensitive data and hack into your other friends’ WhatsApp through your account. If you ever find yourself in a situation like this, call your friend first and confirm whether it is the same or not. If you share an OTP number, you will be in big trouble.


Be safe this way

Turn on two-factor authentication to avoid such scams. You can turn this feature on your WhatsApp in very easy steps.

Turn on WhatsApp and click on the three dots that appear on the right hand corner
Select the account by clicking on the setting option
Turn on by clicking on the option named Two-step verification

You will be asked for a 6 digit PIN when you select enable
You have to add the number in your phone or email.
