This WhatsApp Hack Adds Ghost Mode, Password Protection, Auto Backup, More To The App

WhatsApp is one of the most used instant messaging apps in the world, and that was the case even before Facebook bought it. Nowadays, with encryption being very important across messaging services, WhatsApp continues to be popular and that is unlikely to change any time soon.

What that means is that there are plenty of people using the iPhone app and as a byproduct of that, there are those who want it to work in a very specific way.

Neither Facebook nor WhatsApp itself care too much about that, so it’s up to jailbreak tweak makers to fill the void, and that is exactly where FYAHackWhatsApp comes in. If you forgive the horrendous name for a moment, FYAHackWhatsApp actually has a handful of features that we think people are going to really appreciate.

For starters, users can activate a ghost mode of sorts that will do a few things. Firstly, people will not be able to see when you are online, meaning you can be reading messages and interacting with received media without anyone knowing. Furthermore, you can also read messages without the sender knowing or receiving a read receipt, which again can be important depending on the situation you find yourself in at the time.

Other features include one that will see all WhatsApp messages emailed to a specified address every 15,000 words, complete with timestamps, phone numbers and senders’ names. This does mean that all that encryption we spoke about earlier will be immediately useless, but if you need some sort of insecure backup of your messages, then we suppose this will do the trick. Finally, FYAHackWhatsApp will let users set a password for the WhatsApp app, preventing anyone without that password from being able to read your messages. Pretty neat, really.

If FYAHackWhatsApp sounds like the tweak for you, then it can be downloaded from the Cydia jailbreak store via the BigBoss repository now, and it will not cost you a penny to do so.
