Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s possible but you would have to have good skills. They are most likely trying to put a scare into the person. The account may have a compromised login and/or password. This means the account can be accessed remotely. This is the reason to use strong passwords and nothing that can be found in your social media profile like name, dates to name a few.

    Yes, quite possible but only if the hacker gets a chance to get the phone for some time. This way he can sync the WhatsApp account on his PC or laptop and then bingo, he keeps getting all the messages in parallel. The same applies to any number of hackers.

    Probably yes, but how did you know that? What symptoms are there? Is your phone behaving abnormal? As this is security related issue, more information is needed.

    Moreover, that all depend on type of device and based on your handling or nature of work. If you think really, you can change all necessary passwords with complex ones including your email etc. Remember, if you ever shared your password(s) with someone who is/are very close to you.
