You like millions of others are happily using Whatsapp under an impression that your message could not be cracked or tracked by anyone.
No. It is a spying tool now and none other than the Whatsapp themselves had gone to court alleging that the Israeli surveillance company NSO of helping governments across the world to hack into the mobile devices.
That means Big Brother is watching you over Whatsapp and you cannot do anything without their knowledge. The Whatsapp said that this was unethical but the Israeli Organization said that they were just helping the government to fight terrorism.
The WhatsApp alleged that the Israeli Organisations helped government agencies deliver malicious software, which seemingly looked like harmless video calls. It targets the phone even if you never answered the video call.
The malware then intercepts communications, steal photos and other forms of data, activate microphones and cameras, and track the locations of targets and more.
The messaging service WhatsApp filed suit in US federal court against the Israeli surveillance company NSO, claiming it acted illegally in helping governments hack into the mobile devices of more than 100 people worldwide, including journalists, human rights workers and women who had been the subject of online attacks.
Targets, which also included religious figures and lawyers, were identified in 20 countries, according to the WhatsApp lawsuit.
