Never give a verification code to anyone else!

Don’t give any code you receive to anyone else!
If you do get hacked, it can take some time, possibly up to a week to get your account back.
Two factor authentication is easy and can save you and your groups lots of headache.

Having many admins on a WhatsApp group does not change anything when it comes to this scam. Yes if you’re an admin and your account is “hacked” the hacker will be able to take over the group, remove or add members, but not more.

Hacking into any account will give the hacker contact numbers from groups even if it’s not an admin
