Such opportunity appears from behind vulnerability in tools for synchronization of data mobile and WhatsApp web versions. If you are afraid of something, then you can remove a messenger for a while until this problem is solved, most likely, it should just be updated, the CEO of the Zecurion company Alexey Rayevskiy:aleksey considers Rajevski the CEO of the Zecurion company "It is necessary to look at each vulnerability and to analyze as far as she can do harm to the user. If she can do harm, then it is necessary to suspend use of this program somehow. If isn't present, then it is enough to update the application. Producers quickly enough react to such messages and update applications".

Naturally, developers can't constantly reveal these vulnerabilities therefore both hackers, and some third-party organizations periodically test the program for vulnerabilities. The same Google is ready even to pay extra the fees for messages about this or that vulnerability. It is normal practice, I think that Telegram developers have to hear this news and analyse: if this vulnerability is, then to quickly release a patch. Day-two, and it will be closed".
