Here are some safety tips to help you keep use WhatsApp Securely:

  • Enable Two Factor Authentication (2FA)
  • DONOT Share Authentication Codes with anyone
  • DONOT Send Money to anyone before calling the person directly to confirm if they are really the ones asking
  • If you suspect that a WhatsApp account has been hacked, notify the contact immediately 
  • Send us your reports so we can help prevent others from becoming victims
