Hack WhatsApp Using MAC Spoofing
The abbreviation MAC stands for Media Access Control address which is basically a number of character identifiers used by your network adapter. The address has six pairs of digits, for example: 01:53:35:47:78:cb
Which are unique to every device?
To hack WhatsApp account of someone, you will need to access their MAC address and follow the steps below:
The first step is to completely uninstall your personal WhatsApp account from your device. Do not worry as this is only temporary. You can still re-install WhatsApp later after you are done with this process.
The next step is to get access to your victim’s phone. You’ll have to find a way to do it without them knowing and make sure that you have a few minutes alone with a phone to complete the process.
You then need to find a victim’s MAC address. Remember that the address is made of 12 characters but you can easily find it using the following methods depending on the device.
In Android devices go to Settings > About phone > Status > Wi-Fi MAC address
In Windows phones go to Settings > About > More info > MAC address
In iPhone devices go to Settings > General > About > Wi-Fi address
In BlackBerry go to Options > Device > Device and Status info > WLAN MAC
Next, you will need to locate your own MAC address. Simply use the same procedure as indicated above to find your own MAC address and keep it in a secure place because you’ll use it later.
In step 5 you’ll need to enter a victim’s MAC address into your device. This is what is called spoofing and it informs WhatsApp that you are actually trying to login to your own account when you’re actually gaining access to your targeted victim’s account in your phone.
In the next step, you will download and install specific MAC spoofing apps depending on the type of device that you are using. If you have an iPhone use WifiSpoof or Mac Daddy X, for Android devices use Terminal Emulator or BusyBox. Enter “ip link show” in the terminal and then find the interface with your MAC address.
Change MAC Address
Rooted Android Phone
2. ``` BusyBox app installed on your phone
Once BusyBox is installed, you need to install Terminal app
Once the above requirements are satisfied, follow the instructions below to spoof your MAC address: 1. ``` Open the Terminal app and type the commands as listed below:
$ su [HIT ENTER]
$ busybox iplink show eth0 [HIT ENTER]
(This will show your current MAC address, just for your confirmation)
Now, type the following command:
$ busybox ifconfig eth0 hw ether XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX [HIT ENTER] (In the above command, replace XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX with your new MAC address) 1. ``` You have now spoofed your MAC address successfully. To check for the change enter the following command again:
$ busybox iplink show eth0 [HIT ENTER]
(Now you should see your new MAC address)
Download and then reinstall WhatsApp in your phone again. After you reinstall WhatsApp, you will need to configure it using your target victim’s phone number, which will give you permission to access messages and other content in the WhatsApp account and even send messages just like you would do if you were the real owner of the account.
Confirmation code. Once you enter the victim’s phone number, the real owner of the account will receive a confirmation code to verify that this new phone actually belongs to them. Fortunately, you have the phone close to you so you’ll just check the verification code and enter it to confirm. After this, you’ll have complete access to a target victim’s WhatsApp account. Remember to delete the verification code from a target’s phone before you take it back where you found it.
Lastly, you will need to reset your MAC address after you’ve gained access to your victim’s phone. Just follow the same process you used initially in the third step to change your MAC address and restore your mobile phone.
