How to hack WhatsApp messages
Many people try to find a method to hack WhatsApp app account on the internet but end up with nothing but fake apps and methods which do not work. Well, now it is time for a technique that does hack WhatsApp messages.
How does this Hack work?
Hacking WhatsApp messages entirely depends on finding the encryption key of the WhatsApp account. That encryption key is stored on the victim’s phone, which you can extract.
Once you have access to the key and the message database, you can hack WhatsApp messages with the tool provided below.
So with that out of the way, let’s start WhatsApp hacking
Step 1: Extracting Whatsapp messages database
Whatsapp stores all the messages in a database which will be stored on your phone. But this WhatsApp database is locked with a key.
To get the key, you need to have root access to the victim’s phone. Using the key, you can unlock the database then view all messages.
As you can see, all the WhatsApp messages are stored, as shown below.

Step 2: Extracting WhatsApp encryption key
By using spynote or you can also use the adb hack, which will give you access to the root files. You can copy the key from the victim’s phone. The location of the key is shown below. It will be a file named key. Kind of obvious isn’t` it.

With the help of the key, you can easily decrypt the encrypted data. Use this tool to decode the data WhatsApp viewer.
Step 3: Decrypting the hacked WhatsApp messages with WhatsApp viewer

Step 2: Open the tool. It does not require any complicated installation
Step 3: Select the WhatsApp database you want to hack. To open the database, you have to choose the correct crypt system. In my case, it is crypt 12. Which is what the latest version of WhatsApp uses.
Step 4: Select the key you want to hack WhatsApp messages with.
Step 5: Now, the unencrypted database will be made. Choose a location to save this database.
Step 6: Now open the database with the WhatsApp viewer tool.
Step 7: As you can see, the WhatsApp account has been hacked, and all the messages can be seen.
You can also export the messages and save the messages to your local drive.
Congratulations you have successfully hacked WhatsApp messages with WhatsApp viewer.
How exactly did this tool hack my WhatsApp messages?
This hack happened because WhatsApp uses encryption which is generally a great thing. But WhatsApp stored the key file locally on the phone which is a bad idea if you want security from hackers who are skilled at hacking phones.
So what happens is that with this hack is anyone can hack WhatsApp messages provided they get access to the secret WhatsApp key and the database filled with messages which are fairly easy to do for hackers.
The database is decrypted with the key and all the WhatsApp messages are decrypted and stored in a new unencrypted database.
The tool now just opens the previously hacked database and shows all the WhatsApp messages as shown in the images above.
How do I protect myself from this hack?
- Do not give your phone or device to anyone.
- Don‘t install any apps from unknown sources.
- Do not save and store messages locally.
- Delete WhatsApp messages on a regular basis.
- Disable USB debugging option from the developer settings
- Use telegram`s secret chat option for conversations that you do not want others reading.
- Pray that you don`t make any enemies of hackers
