How to Hack Someone’s WhatsApp Without Their Phone

It may appear impossible to hack someone’s phone without them knowing, but it is not, and the same can be said for hacking someone’s WhatsApp.

It is done for a variety of reasons. Some people break into another person’s privacy to check on their honesty, while others do so out of concern or to keep an eye on their mental health.

Most of the time, a parent tries to do it in order to learn what secrets his child may be keeping.

These are the main reasons why someone would hack WhatsApp without the end-user knowing.

  • Spying on Loved Ones
    Relationships are tricky. One partner (married or dating) may want to know how to read their opposite partner’s text messages without touching their phone. Yes, these doubts can destroy the relationship, but if it is affecting your peace of mind then it is better to know the truth.
  • Protect the Kids
    This platform is popular among young adults, and they sometimes use it to communicate with people they encountered on another social media platform. No one can argue that social media has benefits, but it also has drawbacks in our lives. A parent has no idea who that person is or how he would use the information or photos sent by their children. A parent must be mindful of these situations and be on the lookout for any signs of cyber-bullying.
  • Monitoring Employees’ Activity
    Believe it or not, the sad reality of today is that employee efficiency is influenced by social media in the workplace. It is the duty of management to take this into account. WhatsApp and other social media sites have made it easy to reach someone at any time. While at work, some workers use them to contact friends and family or to misappropriate company secrets. Some employers use WhatsApp hacking to see if their workers are working or wasting time at work.
  • Recover Deleted Messages
    If users lose their phones or forget their device’s passwords or pins, they can hack their own accounts. It’s also helpful if a user deletes their WhatsApp messages by mistake and wants to recover the originals.

Hack WhatsApp using WhatsApp Web

How to Hack Someone's WhatsApp Without Their Phone

When using WhatsApp Web or WhatsApp Desktop, the user is prompted to search the QR code of the victim’s WhatsApp account.

Here’s how to get your hands on it.

WhatsApp Web/Desktop Login using iPhone/iPad

  • On the target iPhone, open WhatsApp.
  • At the bottom of the screen, select the Settings tab.
  • Then, choose WhatsApp Web/Desktop.
  • With the target iPhone/iPad, scan the QR Code that has been opened in WhatsApp Web or WhatsApp Desktop.

Note: To view WhatsApp messages for a longer period of time, check the box below the QR Code that says “keep me logged in.”

  • Both messages and WhatsApp status will be available on the Web Browser screen as soon as the user scans the code.

WhatsApp Web/Desktop Login using Android Phone/Tablet

  • On the target screen, open the WhatsApp app.
  • In the top right corner, press the three vertical dots.
  • A drop-down menu with a few choices will appear.
  • Tap on WhatsApp Web, which will take the user to the next screen, where they can use a scanner to search the QR code.
  • Place the scanner of the target mobile in front of the QR Code that has been opened in WhatsApp Web or WhatsApp Desktop.

Note: To view WhatsApp messages for a longer period of time, check the box below the QR Code that says “keep me logged in.”

  • Both messages and WhatsApp status will be available on the Web Browser screen as soon as the user scans the code.

Hack WhatsApp Using Spy Apps

How to Hack Someones WhatsApp Without Their Phone

There are several spying applications available on the internet that can read WhatsApp messages from the target phone. These applications keep track of WhatsApp by logging keystrokes and taking screenshots of the target device on a regular basis.

You can access these WhatsApp chat histories remotely via email. A few of the popular spying apps are iKeyMonitor, mSpy, etc.

In the case of the iPhone, all you need is the target user’s iCloud credentials, and you’re good to go. However, you will need to take control of the target device to complete a one-time download on Android smartphones.

If you’ve completed this process, the spy app will run in stealth mode, giving you remote access to all of the messages you need.

Hack WhatsApp by Sending an OTP

How to Hack Someones WhatsApp Without Their Phone

If you have the WhatsApp account authentication code or OTP (one-time-password) sent to the registered number, you can also hack someone’s WhatsApp.

Typically, WhatsApp sends a verification code to the phone number used to log in. You will be able to access the user’s data and private messages if they share this code with you or if you have access to the target device.

WhatsApp has also introduced a two-factor authentication function that allows users to generate a code that they must enter any time they want to register with the same mobile number.

In such instances, the above approach could be ineffective; however, this security measure does have a flaw. Once they have access to the target person’s device, anyone can disable this function in a matter of minutes.

To do so all you need to do is open WhatsApp, Go to settings, and disable the two-factor authentication.

Hack WhatsApp using Whatscan for Whatsweb

To use Whatscan for Whatsweb you need to do the following:

  • To get started, download and install the software on your mobile device. It is compatible with both Android and iOS devices.
  • To use the app, open it and choose your preferred language.
  • Use the Whatscan app to scan the phone of your wife, spouse, child, or friend. It’s worth remembering that you’ll need to have access to the target phone in order to do so.
  • After you’ve completed this, you’ll be able to read and send messages, access files, and use the person’s Whatsapp on your phone.

While this method appears to be the best one, it has a few disadvantages. According to the reviews, we have read, you may need to check the QR code on your victim’s phone regularly.

Hack WhatsApp by Accessing Backed Up Data

WhatsApp says that its platform is safe since all messages are encrypted end-to-end. Messages and data saved as a backup on the phone which even though are encrypted can be restored using the OTP method.

All you need to do is get access to the target phone.

Copy the files present in WhatsApp -> Database folder (the latest file is named msgstore.db.crypt12 and older files are appended with date) to your phone (make sure you follow the same directory structure).

Then using the OTP method, authenticate yourself as the target person. WhatsApp will automatically prompt you to restore the data from the old backup.

Exporting WhatsApp Chat History to Email

How to Hack Someones WhatsApp Without Their Phone

The hacker will spy on the WhatsApp conversation of a specific contact (from the victim’s WhatsApp contact list) using this method.

This simple method only requires a few minutes of physical access to the target device. One can open the victim’s WhatsApp account during this time and export the chat history (of any particular contact) by clicking on the three vertical dots on the top right corner and clicking export Chat.

WhatsApp will build the chat history which can be then shared to your phone using your preferred method (Email, Bluetooth, or WhatsApp itself).

Any messages, as well as shared voice notes and files, will be included in the exported chat history. However, you won’t be able to recover the deleted text or file from the chat history.

How to Protect Yourself From Getting Hacked?

  • Make sure that your smartphone’s system software is up to date.
  • Use decent antivirus software to defend yourself from spyware. Others cannot install spyware on your phone if you have a strong antivirus installed.
  • Protect your phone with a lock screen to prevent others from accessing it.
