My WhatsApp is sending random messages to people. They're not just random, they're actual messages. I think my account is hacked. How do I stop it?

Yes your whats app has been hacked

Someone accessed you phone, selected the WhatsApp Web on your Phone’s WhatsApp account and synced it with their individual computer. Thus, the person is able to send messages and view/delete all your WhatsApp texts using his/her computer.

In your Phone’s WhatsApp account, go to WhatsApp Web. When you select it, you will be shown the device which has connected to your whatsapp. Click on the “Log out from add devices” option

if your is phone is rooted please unroot it.

You can protect your whatsapp account in this way:·

Don’t give your phone to person you don`t trust.

go to setting of your Whatsapp and click “log-out from all browser

Enable two-step verification as follows:

To enable two-step verification, open WhatsApp > Réglages > Compte > Vérification en deux étapes > permettre.

This step will ask you to create a password and will prevent someone else to use your number for Whatsapp verification.

I do not know you are on which Mobile OS but most of the possible sollutions that I might give you has been already suggested. You could try those. I have one last solution which is listed below. This is for Android, but you can follow the same troubleshooting for other OS also.

  1. Uninstall Whatsapp.
  2. Redémarrez votre téléphone.
  3. Reinstall Whatsapp Google Play and do not install from any un-trusted source.
  4. Give the old mobile number to Activate Whatsapp and activate it.
  5. Go back to Google Play store and install an app called App Lock by Fotoable Inc.
  6. Run it and protect Whatsapp with PIN or pattern lock.
  7. Install a good mobile antivirus.

P.S. As per new Whatsapp Update, the service can be availed only on one mobile device where the service is last activated by mobile OTP verification. Also if the app is locked with patern or PIN, it can not be accessed by anyone else.

Merci pour le A2A

First of all, sorry for the occurrence. I do hope that those random messages have not impacted on you negatively.

Now let’s get down to business.

Recently, WhatsApp included a new feature called WhatsApp Web. It a PC based extension in which you can access you Phone WhatsApp account directly using your computer. The chats are fully synced between both the phone and the computer. Additionally, you can view, delete or send messages using either the computer or the phone. Whichever action that is done on one is immediately synced to the other.

Using the Feature is easy. You just open WhatsApp on your Computer’s browser. Then Click WhatsApp Web. After that, go back to your phone. Under settings, the 3rd Option is WhatsApp web. Click it then scan the QR code displayed on your computer. That way, you can now received or send messages using either of them.

I do suspect that is what happened in your case. Someone accessed you phone, selected the WhatsApp Web on your Phone’s WhatsApp account and synced it with their individual computer. Thus, the person is able to send messages and view/delete all your WhatsApp texts using his/her computer.

However, it is easy to log out the person and prevent him/her from accessing your account. In your Phone’s WhatsApp account, go to WhatsApp Web. When you select it, you will be shown the device which has connected to your whatsapp. Click on the “Log out from add devices” option. And Cheers! You are done! No more being spied.

J'espère que cela pourra aider.

Since a WhatsApp account can't be used from 2devices simultaneously, someone is using your WhatsApp account through WhatsApp Web. Have a check if you have ever logged in into WhatsApp Web from a computer.
