WhatsApp is undeniably the most popular text messaging platform out there. However, with such popularity the risk of personal info breach and data tracking increases fourfold. While WhatsApp has several privacy and security measures in place for app and desktop versions, it won’t hurt you to be doubly sure. Meta (formerly known as Facebook) has launched a browser extension that helps users check whether they are using the correct version of the WhatsApp Web. The extension will confirm the integrity of the web application and ensure that it hasn’t been tampered with by any third parties such as hackers to redirect your data or messages to them. Here’s how to use the extension to check whether your WhatsApp Web QR code has been hacked or not.

WhatsApp Web QR code hack is the intervention of third parties who can manipulate and tamper the source code of the WhatsApp Web website to steal or track a user’s data or activity. One of the ways this can possibly happen is by targeting a specific IP address of a computer or PC and changing the scannable code whenever the person visits WhatsApp web’s website (web.whatsapp.com). Once the code is scanned, as it’s normally done, the third parties may potentially start receiving the WhatsApp messages and data of that person. 
To check whether the WhatsApp Web version you’re using is authentic and legitimate, simply install Meta’s (formerly Facebook) official browser extension and it’ll take care of everything else. Here’s the step by step process to do so.
The whole process of installing the Code Verify extension and getting it to work is the same for both Windows and macOS.
The Code Verify extension cannot read the user’s messages or any other activity being performed inside our outside of WhatsApp Web. In fact, WhatsApp cannot even track whether any of its users have installed the extension on their computers and PCs.
Depending on the WhatsApp Web version a user is being served, the following messages will be shown upon clicking the extension.
