Some WhatsApp users on Android devices got upset when their accounts were logged out yesterday without any reason. In fact, there were some users who received a message that read, ‘Your phone number is no longer registered with WhatsApp on this phone. This can happen if you have registered WhatsApp on another phone. If you haven’t done so, verify your phone number to log back into your account.
There have also been many such reports in which it has been said by WhatsApp users that their privacy and data have been tampered with by hackers, which undoubtedly must have been quite disappointing.
WhatsApp shutting down on its own is definitely a cause for concern, especially when most WhatsApp users are talking to someone on WhatsApp. Even sensitive photos, videos, passwords and usernames of users could have been misused by hackers in this bug. This becomes a big problem for all the users.

However, in this particular case, everything ended on a good note. On Twitter, WABetaInfo announced that it was just a bug and that no one really needs to worry about compromising the security of their device. The company tweeted, ‘If you have recently logged out of WhatsApp on WhatsApp for Android, don’t worry, it’s a bug. You can log in to WhatsApp again.” The company has also shared a photo of WhatsApp in this tweet.
Do not make such mistake even by forgetting…
This incident should be seen as a way for users to be alert, WhatsApp users should be aware that scammers are continuously launching phishing attacks to steal their money or online identity. Kaspersky has revealed in its latest warning that these attacks on WhatsApp users have increased manifold.
