    From OnlyWhatsApp, we want to show you the most effective ways to spy on the WhatsApp application, on your IPhone. With only your cell phone you can be aware of the information / messages of another person, just by knowing their phone number. If you want to know all the details, this is your post!

    Preliminary information


    Before we get to the heart of the guide, we will show you how the bad guys do a spy WhatsApp iPhone, there is some preliminary information that it is my duty to provide you so that you can have a perfectly clear idea about it.

    Let's start with a fixed point: WhatsApp can be considered reasonably secure, so there is no need to be particularly paranoid about the actual level of secrecy of conversations. The service, in fact, uses an end-to-end encryption system called TextSecure, in place since the end of 2014 thanks to a collaboration with the developers of Whisper Open Systems.


    This system is based on the use of a public key, which is shared with your interlocutor and a private key, which instead resides on the smartphone of each individual user. Everything happens in real time, without the user having to do anything, but thanks to this technology, messages travel from the smartphone to WhatsApp servers in encrypted form and can only be read by legitimate senders and recipients. For more information, you can refer to my specific guide on how to encrypt WhatsApp.


    Unfortunately, however, WhatsApp is closed source software, it is not possible to examine the content of the source code. Consequently, it is not possible to exclude with absolute certainty the presence of flaws or bugs in the implementation of the TextSecure system.

    In this regard, from some tests, such as the one conducted by Heise in 2015, it appears that at that time end-to-end encryption was used only in the Android version of WhatsApp, while in all other cases it was still applied. a system based on RC4 algorithms, working only on the output and considered unreliable for some time. However, in the current state of affairs, the situation is very different and end-to-end encryption is used on all platforms for which WhatsApp is available and therefore also on iOS.


    How to spy WhatsApp: iOS

    Having made the necessary clarifications above, I would say that we can finally get to the heart of the guide and go and find out how hackers are doing, spy WhatsApp iOS. Below you will find indicated what are the main techniques adopted by the bad guys.

    Cloning MAC addresses

    Among the most popular techniques to spy WhatsApp on iPhone is Cloning MAC addresses of the victim's device. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, the MAC address is a 12-digit code that allows you to uniquely identify computer network cards and all devices that connect to the Internet.


    That said, an attacker could install special applications on your smartphone, disguise your MAC address and "make WhatsApp think" that another phone is being used (in this case, the iPhone of the person to be spied on). Although the description may sound otherwise, fortunately this is not an easy procedure. Moreover, it takes a lot of time and prolonged contact with the device of the subject of your interest.

    To give a practical example, if an attacker wants to spy WhatsApp from Android to iPhone, he must first unlock the device by performing root and must have applications installed that allow him to change the MAC address, as in the case of BusyBox and Phantom Mac Address, which I told you more specifically in my guide on how to clone WhatsApp. Next, you have to worry about finding out the MAC address of the victim's iPhone (found in the Settings> General> Information> Wi-Fi of iOS), you must configure the data obtained on your smartphone, install WhatsApp and activate the application using the phone number of the target subject.


    App for parental control and to monitor access.

    There are also apps that allow you to monitor everything that happens on your smartphone and, consequently, can also be used to spy WhatsApp on iPhone.


    This category includes parental control app, such as Qustodio and Screen Time, which allow you to both monitor and limit the use of different apps and can also be used to spy WhatsApp from iPhone to Android. Fortunately, they cannot record what is typed on the smartphone keyboard or directly capture WhatsApp messages, but if configured correctly, they can be quite invasive. They also have in their favor that they are not too expensive and are usually available on a trial basis.

    Then there are apps that allow you to spy on the latest WhatsApp iPhone access, simply by typing in their phone number. Solutions of this type do not require physical access to the victim's cell phone and it is not even possible to defend against their action, since the access times to WhatsApp are from the public. In general, solutions for spying WhatsApp knowing the iPhone number are free, but to take full advantage of all the features offered, such as exporting the data obtained, it is necessary to subscribe to paid subscriptions.

    Social engineering techniques

    Among the most popular systems for spying WhatsApp on iPhone are also those defined as social engineering (Social engineering). In this case, the victim on duty is tricked with excuses, which can be more or less trivial, usually even with a friendly and complacent attitude, to gain access to their data: in this particular case to the "iPhone by" and WhatsApp.


    A practical example of social engineering is when the attacker, inventing a special excuse, manages to borrow the victim's iPhone and uses the situation to read his WhatsApp chats or, even worse, to install applications through which he can monitor the device and the remote messaging service.

    Other tactics to spy on a WhatsApp contact with iPhone

    Another technique often used by malicious people to spy on other people's devices is "Sniffing" wireless networks. The term "sniffing" means to examine, through software designed for that purpose, how Wireshark, which I told you about in my specific guide on how to sniff a wireless network, all the data that pass in clear on a Wi-Fi network (as WhatsApp messages could be).

    Until before the implementation of the end-to-end encryption system, which I told you about in the step at the beginning of the tutorial, sniffing wireless networks also allowed you to spy WhatsApp on iPhone, but today, fortunately, this is no longer the case.

    Another less sophisticated system, but no less effective, which until not so long ago was widely used by WhatsApp spies was to borrow the victim's cell phone, with any excuse, and then make use of social engineering techniques mentioned above, to then be able to use it. web boot WhatsApp or WhatsApp Client for Windows or macOS, which allow you to read and send messages from your PC using your smartphone as a "bridge".

    To use them, in fact, simply open WhatsApp on your mobile and scan a QR Code displayed on the computer screen, as I explained in detail in my guide on how to use WhatsApp on PC. In addition, through the feature that allows you to stay connected, you can store the user's identity and access conversations without requiring a new scan of the QR code each time. However, to date, the aforementioned technique can no longer be considered valid as WhatsApp sends notifications related to access and requires biometric identification to enable access.

    How not to be spied on WhatsApp on iPhone

    • Enable lock on WhatsApp - maybe you didn't know this, but you should know that WhatsApp provides its users with a feature to block access to the application via face or fingerprint, through which it is possible to prevent third parties from accessing your conversations without authorization.

For more information, read my post on how to lock the iPhone screen.
    • Disable SMS display on the lock screen - by cloning the iPhone MAC address, an attacker could enable WhatsApp on your device using your number. However, to do this, you must read the verification code sent by SMS to your "iPhone by". Therefore, by disabling the display of SMS on the lock screen you can prevent such situations from occurring. To do this, go to Settings> Notifications> Messages and deselect the Lock Screen item. For more information, read my tutorial on how to not display messages on the lock screen.
    • Check for spy apps - If you think there are spy apps on your Apple smartphone, check it by accessing the list of installed apps and remove the suspicious ones. To do this, go to Settings> General> iPhone Space and delete the apps you think might be spying by tapping on their name and on the voice Delete App. For more details, read my post on how to remove spyware from your cell phone.
    • Reactivate the disabled account - if someone has enabled WhatsApp on another device with your phone number, you will no longer be able to use it on your iPhone. If you find yourself in such a situation, contact WhatsApp support immediately to report the issue. For more information, read my post on how to contact WhatsApp.
