You have to agree with a fact – every other mobile owner today is a Whatsapp user. We spend hours on this amazing instant messaging client. It’s just not a chat application, features like data and media sharing has allowed Whatsapp to hold number of users with it. Everything is perfect or nothing is perfect – everything comes with a security loop hole and Whatsapp isn’t spared too, thereby allowing someone to spy your Whatsapp chat.
A unique MAC(Media Access Control) address identifies a Whatsapp account. If a user changes the MAC address of his/her advice, a re-verification o f the Whtsapp account is then prompted concluding that you cannot use the same Whatsapp account from two devices. The question arises- what if by some tweaking make the same MAC address for the two devices ? In that case, you will certainly be able to use same Whatsapp ID from two devices and spy over the chats of someone you always wanted to. Let’s go ahead and see how this can be done from your Android:
- rooted Android device on which BusyBox can be installed
(BusyBox can also be installed on Non-rooted Android device)
For starters, BusyBox allows you to use additional linux commands. BusyBox provides several stripped-down Unix tools in a single executable file.
- A terminal app to write additional Linux commands on your Android
- find a way to access the victim’s phone for a couple of minutes
Let’s know how to spy someone’s Whatsapp now:
- Uninstall Whatsapp from your phone
- Find the MAC address of the victim’shone:
For Android –
Head over to settings—> About phone—> Status—> Wi-Fi MAC address.
For iPhone –
Head over to Settings—> General—> About—> Wi-Fi address.
For Windows Phone –
Head over to Settings—> About—> More info—> MAC address.
For BlackBerry –
Head over to options—> Device—> Device and Status info—> WLAN MAC.
Done with installing terminal app and BusyBox on your Android? If yes, open Terminal app from your Android and follow the instructions for spoofing the MAC address provided in the link. If you followed the steps successfully, you will certainly end up with a spoofed MAC address.
Now reinstall WhatsApp on your phone, enter victims phone number and verify your account by entering the verification code received on victim’s phone. Go ahead and you can now start spying.
