WhatsApp Urges Users To Update App Post Hack

Popular instant messaging app, WhatsApp is urging people to update their respective apps immediately after it was targeted by the hackers as it installed sophisticated spyware on the phones of the users while giving them access to a huge data. The security flaw has been fixed in the new and updated version of WhatsApp that was released in recent days but some of the users will need to manually update the app to get proper protection from such hackers to access their data.


It is still not known on how many of the 1.5 billion users of WhatsApp were targeted by the hackers, who managed to install the surveillance technology that is developed by Israel’s NSO group. It phoned the target through WhatsApp’s cal functionality. Social networking giant Facebook that owns WhatsApp said, “WhatsApp encourages people to upgrade to the latest version of our app, we well as keep their mobile operating system up to date to protect against potential targeted exploits designed to compromise information stored on mobile devices.”

In order to make sure that your phone is safe, open Play Store and go to the Menu and tap on My Apps and games. Find the WhatsApp messenger within the Installed apps list and tap the app and hit Read More and scroll to the bottom. Under the App Info, if it says that you have the version 2.19.134 then it means that your phone is well protected. But if you have an earlier version for instance the 2.19.133, then you need to keep it updated.

Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10?
With so many phones being almost identical to the last model, we're impressed with what Samsung has done with the Galaxy Note 10.
The 10+ model still provides the classic Note experience, but this regular one will finally appeal to those that want the S Pen on a much more manageable phone. This is largely due to tiny bezels and the punch-hole camera.
Based on some hands-on time, we love it.

For the first time ever, there's a plus model of Samsung's S Pen smartphone. Here's why you'll want the Galaxy Note 10+ if you like having extras.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+?
As it typical for the Note, this 10th edition is a truly amazing smartphone... but only for those that can afford it and really want this size of device.
There's no doubt Samsung has made the Note 10+ the best edition yet with better cameras, an amazing screen and lots more impressive tech. However, many of the new features are gimmicky and we imagine some users will be distraught at the removal of the headphone jack.

Samsung had shaken thing up and you can now choose between the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus, but which is the best phone for you? We compare them to help you decide.
