According to him, Telegram has an almost “spy” function “Find nearby people”. With his help, the hackers were able to write a whole script that allows you to determine the exact location of people. And WhatsApp vulnerabilities allow scammers to collect a large amount of information about the user, including their purchase history, payment information, phone number, and email address.

“With such data, an attacker can devise an individual way to compromise a particular person,” the Prime agency quotes the expert.

In addition, Stepanov added, scammers can send spam and bots to collect information about the location of the smartphone, as well as steal bank details. He recommended using geolocation only when necessary and enabling two-factor authentication.
