Anyone can lock you out of WhatsApp due to ’flaw’ in app

Attackers can lock users outside of their WhatsApp with a new loophole discovered in the authentication system of the app. With this, the attackers can deactivate the account of the user. But, users don’t need to worry a lot as the entire process takes about 36 hours and is very complicated. No mechanism is provided by WhatsApp that asks the user to verify themselves so as to avoid such problems.
