Whatsapp users have been advised to stay cautious of spam messages demanding security codes which could serve hackers attempting to steal accounts.

According to WABetaInfo, an independent portal related to news regarding Whatsapp, users should block and report unofficial accounts on WhatsApp that ask for 6-digit codes.

“Another attempt to steal your WhatsApp account: prove that you’re a human sending the code you’ve just received from WhatsApp, or your account will be disabled tomorrow,” it posted.

Earlier this week, India’s Competition Commission launched an antitrust investigation into Whatsapp’s new privacy policy update, claiming that the tech giant violated antitrust laws.

The Commission accused the Facebook-owned company of breaching competition laws “through its exploitative and exclusionary conduct … in the garb of policy update,” adding that its new method of data sharing is “neither fully transparent nor based on voluntary and specific user consent.”
