WhatsApp users beware – there's a worrying new porn scam targeting the chat app 1

And more than banking credentials, cyber crooks are increasingly looking for something a little less obvious – your login details for an online account. While that might not seem as valuable as banking information, it holds an even greater appeal for hackers.

Vade Secure explains: “Rather than seek a financial payback from social media phishing, cybercriminals may be harvesting credentials and then attempting to reuse the passwords to hack into other online services. After all, a 2019 Google survey found that that two in three people recycle the same password across multiple accounts.”

The news comes as it was revealed a Google search could find your private WhatsApp group chats, potentially allowing strangers access to your text messages, photos, and phone number.
