Since its inception, WhatsApp has been spearheading the instant messaging arena. And the Facebook-owned app’s popularity was further boosted by its new security feature—end-to-end encryption—which makes messages unreadable to any other person except the sender and the recipient.
Users can now heave a sigh of relief against the menace of hacking. But those who are yet to update their WhatsApp, beware. Because no end-to-end encryption means reading your WhatsApp conversations is just a few clicks away for any hacker worth his salt.
Actually WhatsApp takes regular backups of all your conversations everyday into a database. This way, even if your app goes corrupt or you lose your data in some way, the app can recover all previous data.
But the solution can also be used to read someone’s WhatsApp data if you can access the database file from that person’s phone. Below are the steps you need to follow to hack any WhatsApp account.

It should be noted that the latest version of WhatsApp stores files in crypt9 standard, which has not yet been broken at the time of writing this article. Once a new way comes out, we will update the story.
