  • User “Anonymous_” shared a funny story about his 10-year-old cousin on Reddit.
  • Apparently, the girl tried to take over her mother’s WhatsApp account with the help of Google.
  • Another search query shows how serious the girl was.

To take over someone else’s WhatsApp account, you need a six-digit verification code in addition to the phone number. This is now apparently even known to children, as seen in the following story, which was shared by someone with the handle “Anonymous_” on the internet platform Reddit.

The 10-year-old cousin of “Anonymous_” allegedly searched her parents’ PC with Google for the six-digit code for her mother’s WhatsApp account. This shows the search query, “What is the 6-digit code for…”, which can be seen in a screenshot attached to the post.

The post caused a lot of fun on Reddit. It was clicked over 8,000 times in a few days and garnered around 600 comments. In these, many users are also amused by another search query of the girl: “www . dark web .com”. Apparently, she was even willing to descend into the depths of the web to get her mother’s WhatsApp account code.

Response from parents unknown

The reaction of the parents to the alleged “hacking attempt” is not known. A father recently shared a creative way to punish his son on Reddit: a Windows 11 update.
