Newbies should follow above stated methods (which I am explaining below) to hack WhatsApp account.
1. Hack WhatsApp by changing MAC Address
Media Access Control (or MAC) address is a 12-character unique identifier (e.g. 01:2b:45:6d:89:3X) for a specific piece of hardware, like the network adapter located in WiFi devices. So, it can unique identify a hardware. WhatsApp in a person’s phone is not only bounded by his/her phone number but it is linked to the device’s MAC address too. So, even if you try to install WhatsApp in a new device using victim’s phone number, it doesn’t allow you to activate the WhatsApp account because of MAC address conflict.
In this method to hack WhatsApp using MAC address, I will tell you how to hack a WhatsApp account by properly spoofing MAC address so that your device mimic victim’s smartphone and hence you’ll be able to hijack his/her Whatsapp:
Step 1 – The first step is to uninstall WhatsApp from your own device. Install WhatsApp from the device where you want to install verify victim’s WhatsApp account. You can do this in 3 ways:
- by simply dragging WhatsApp app icon to home and drop it to Uninstall option
- by locating WhatsApp App in your Installed Apps list, opening it and tap Uninstall
- by searching WhatsApp in Google Play and tap on Uninstall button
If you have to uninstall your main WhatsApp as you don’t have any other device to hack WhatsApp separately, don’t worry after this hacking process you can reinstall your WhatsApp. However it is recommended to follow this tutorial on how to properly backup & restore WhatsApp so that you won’t lose any data (messages, photos, videos, audio, etc.).
Step 2 – Once you have uninstalled WhatsApp from your smartphone, you need to acquire victim’s smartphone for a moment. Try to acquire it in such a situation that he/she won’t find it suspicious. Once you gained access to victim’s smartphone, you need to copy the device’s MAC address. To do this, go to victim phone’s Settings >> About Phone >> Status (or Hardware Information in some smartphone) and note down 12-digit Wi-Fi MAC address to some safe place.
Step 3 – Now, once you have MAC address, you can either use your smartphone or PC as a tool to hack WhatsApp account of your victim. All you have to do is change your device’s MAC address to the MAC address you’ve obtained from your victim’s smartphone.
- If you want to do it using PC then follow instructions provided here to spoof MAC address in Windows. After, use BlueStack or any other Android emulator to install WhatsApp in your PC.
To change MAC address of your Android device, you Android phone must be rooted because changing MAC address requires the phone to have apps like BusyBox, MAC Address ghost app installed which only work with ROOTED android phone. If your phone is not rooted, follow these steps to Root an Android phone.
Now, you need to install BusyBox and MAC Address ghost app to change MAC address of Android. MAC Address ghost app’s settings to change MAC address varies from device-to-device. So, follow this XDA Developer’s Guide to know how to change MAC address of Android for your Android phone.
Step 4 – Once you have changed your device’s MAC address to victim’s phone’s MAC address, it’s time to install WhatsApp messenger again. So, search WhatsApp in Google Play Store again, download & install it. After that, open it and verify WhatsApp with your victim’s phone number (you might need to borrow victim’s phone for a minute again to know OTP WhatsApp sent to his/her number to verify the WhatsApp account).
Step 5 – Once you have verified the WhatsApp, you have hacked WhatsApp of your victim smartphone. Now, whatever messages your victim receive, you will receive that too. You will be able to see the replies victim is sending from his/her WhatsApp and even send reply by yourself on victim’s behalf without any problem.
Once you’ve done with your hacking stuff, you can reinstall this WhatsApp, change your device’s MAC address to the original one, install WhatsApp with your original number and start using WhatsApp normally again.
2. Hack WhatsApp Online
It is the easiest and quickest trick to hack a WhatsApp account if you are in safe zone. And, by safe zone I mean you are 100% sure that victim will not check his WhatsApp when you use it in his behalf. And, don’t worry, you don’t need to connect victim’s phone in your PC using USB cable or something, victim can keep his phone to himself and you can enjoy hacking his WhatsApp remotely. 😉
If you think you are in the safe zone where you are totally sure that victim is not using his WhatsApp right now & you can monitor him somehow then follow these steps to hack his WhatsApp account online:
Step 1 – You require access to victim’s WhatsApp at least once without his consent. In this trick to hack WhatsApp online, we are utilizing WhatsApp Web feature (web.whatsapp.com). If you get a chance to access victim’s WhatsApp without his consent, take his phone and browse https://web.whatsapp.com from your PC/Laptop.
Step 2 – You’ll see a QR code at the webpage. Now, in victim’s WhatsApp, tap 3-dots button available at the top-right corner which will open up a menu. Choose WhatsApp Web from it and it will open a phone’s camera as scanner inside WhatsApp. Use it to scan QR code you see at web.whatsapp.com
Step 3 – Once you’ve scanned, you’ve connected victim’s WhatsApp to your PC which you can you to send/receive messages of victim’s WhatsApp, view previous messages and spy on a WhatsApp account.
As WhatsApp Web is a authentic feature from WhatsApp (and not a hacking tool) so WhatsApp put a notification in notification bar when you use victim’s WhatsApp online through web.whatsapp.com. That’s why you need to be sure that victim will not check his phone while you’re using his WhatsApp.
3. Hack WhatsApp using Spy Software/Apps
If you want to skip the technical steps of hacking a WhatsApp account or if you want to be extra precautious, then their are some good spy apps which can help you.

It allows you to spy victim’s SMS, social network activities, WhatsApp chats, location (GPS tracking), call (logs, call record), photos & videos, emails, etc. You are provided with a online mSpy account which you can access using any web browser to track activities of you victim(s).

4. Hack WhatsApp using QR Code
Well, before some of you extra smart brains shout, let me clarify that it is not the hacking method I used in method no. 2 to hack whatsapp online because there, we were using the original WhatsApp QR code by ourself. This hacking trick to hack a WhatsApp account utilizes phishing method.
It creates fake QR code which you connects with victim’s PC/Laptop so that whenever he tries to connect WhatsApp through his own PC/Laptop by browsing web.whatsapp.com, the phishing QR code appears which when he scans with his WhatsApp provide you full access to victim’s WhatsApp account.

5. Hack WhatsApp using Mercury Browser
The most widely used hacking tactics evolve vulnerabilities of targeted apps/system or vulnerabilities available in connected apps or system. Even if WhatsApp developers have made WhatsApp very secure by providing end-to-end encryption, two-step verification and lots of other security mechanisms, other apps which users install in their phone might not have same level of security.
And, in some of these apps, developers have left such vulnerabilities which keep other apps & whole phone on risk. For example, the recent vulnerability found about WiFi transfer apps which left the ports open which can be utilized by hackers to extract any data from target smartphone.
Similarly, Mercury browser app has a vulnerability which is being utilized fairly by hackers to hack any person’s WhatsApp who have this browser installed in their phone. Hackers are utilizing mercury browser’s file browsing feature to extract data files, folder from target smartphone, modifying information and even putting media files, messages in it’s upload folder to be automatically sent to WhatsApp, etc.
