> Hackers can a gain access to a user’s cell phone by using a vulnerability that is triggered when a video call is answered.

> There is vulnerability with the two-factor authentication on WhatsApp. If a user switches off their phone at night, the password recovery system can be made to call and name the code, this code can be accessed using voicemail since most passwords are still weak.
