WhatsApp has recently revealed a hack of its voice calling function that enables hackers to spy on users’ phone without their knowledge. To ensure safety when using your mobile phone and social media, you are advised to take the following measures immediately:

  1. Update WhatsApp to the latest version
  2. Disable cloud backup for WhatsApp to avoid your chat history being leaked in case the cloud is hacked
  3. Enable WhatsApp’s two-step verification (Settings > Account > Two-step verification) to add more security to your account
