Guide To Using Multiple WhatsApp Accounts On Desktop

The Pegasus spyware scandal has rocked many countries across the world, including India. Government officials, senior political figures, journalists, activists — many have been targeted and their phones being ‘hacked’. Apple’s iMessage has also been targeted and Apple came out with a statement.
WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart has called out Apple on this statement in an interview with The Guardian. Cathcart speaking on the scandal said that, “This should be a wake up call for security on the internet … mobile phones are either safe for everyone or they are not safe for everyone.”
Cathcart praised the likes of Microsoft and other tech companies for speaking about dangers of malware and wants Apple to do more. “I hope that Apple will start taking that approach too,” Cathcart told The Guardian. “Be loud, join in. It’s not enough to say, most of our users don’t need to worry about this. It’s not enough to say ‘oh this is only thousands or tens of thousands of victims’,” said Cathcart.
What Ivan Krstić, head of Apple Security Engineering, had said that the threat exists but majority of Apple users were safe.
