Hi , I received a link on my WhatsApp. On clicking it after a sec it transferred to google play store on safari as I am using iPhone 7 Plus. I am afraid my wife sent me this link as a hacking tool to monitor my phone, my question is: Can it be hacking link or just a normal link for kids educational genuine app when I sent to a friend having android it opened immediately in play store? Some say phones are not hacked just by a single click. One needs to send something back or write or download for a phone to get hacked. Please respond. Thanks!

    It is almost impossible to hack an iPhone as its internal mechanism/security is so strong. As you mentioned, your wife might did this work, so why? Do you not rely on your wife? Why are you not asking your wife directly to clear your doubts? However, in this way this is not possible to hack your iPhone. If you don't trust, simply you can delete the link/WhatsApp message.

    If you suspect it may be a hack tool why did you send it to a friend? What was the link you clicked on? It may be valid and you are just being paranoid. Without knowing what you clicked on we can only guess.
