Army warns of Chinese hackers targeting Whatsapp to extract personal data

New Delhi: The Indian Army has warned citizens against Chinese hackers, who are now apparently targeting Indians through WhatsApp.

Yesterday, the official Twitter handle of the army's Additional Directorate General of Public Information released a video detailing the alleged risks.

It also offered suggestions on how people can keep themselves safe.

In November, army personnel had been asked to remove several Chinese apps from their phones.

A video in this regard offers advice on how to prevent such potential attacks.

Save all contacts in a WhatsApp group on your phone with proper names, so they are identifiable.

Be on the lookout for unknown numbers entering WhatsApp groups.

In case you change your number, inform the group admin immediately. Also make sure to deactivate WhatsApp before destroying the previous SIM.
