What is verification code scam

These days this cyber scam is causing harm to many people. Under the guise of this scam, many people give their WhatsApp accounts to hackers. Scammers are not only hacking people's accounts through WhatsApp's verification code, but to do so, they throw dust in the eyes of the user in the name of the user's family and friends.

In the verification code scam, users get the login code of WhatsApp in a text message. Actually, this is a two factor authentication code, through which users can enable login in the registered WhatsApp account number. But in this scam, the cybercriminal sends messages to close friends and relatives and says that by mistake the WhatsApp login code has been sent to them. If you send this code back by mistake then your account may be hacked. If you receive such a message, then under no circumstances should you reply to the message. Never share that code with anyone. Users should be aware that WhatsApp does not send the verification code to any other mobile number. The verification code is on your phone. If you send it to someone, they will control your WhatsApp account from it. If such a message is received, it means that a cybercriminal is trying to gain access to your account. As soon as you share the code with him, the hacker will gain access to your WhatsApp account while you are logged out from your own account.
