Has someone hacked my Whatsapp account?

Once I finished or end my whatsaap video call, I received a notification (you are using whatsaap video call). I didn't read until end. I was shocked. Because this is first time I received this kind notification. Is a third person hacking my whatsaap account or phone?

    Probably no. Have you shared your password with another person? Ff not then somehow this is not possible. Assuming by mistake, there are some changes in settings, (specially on iPhone) and perhaps this one shows there. Check all settings.

    This message doesn't indicate at all if it is hacked. In fact, it could be a new feature added by WhatsApp to inform user. In any case you can write to WhatsApp regarding this and get a firm opinion. 

    I will suggest simulate a similar video interaction first and see if the same message comes. If it comes, ensure to read it complete before arriving at any conclusion.

    If you are using iOS/iPhone, then version is a matter to work some additional features of whatsapp. If you are using iOS 9/10, then you may get more advantages. Check settings first.

    Almost certainly not; at least, not at the time you received the notice. As for what happened after you accessed the notice, we have no way to know. But either way, it's unlikely to have anything at all to do with 'hacking' a WhatsApp account.

    As you are using Samsung Mobile, it is better to change all passwords (including email) with complex ones. And check if that message shows again. But somehow there is some kind of notification in settings (either on settings menu/Whatsapp settings) and check again.
