"I did not know. He had connected my WhatsApp to his Chrome on his PC. He used to read the messages for me, but I did not know," she said.

She only came to catch him red-handed when they had a misunderstanding, and he mistakenly mentioned something from her chats that he would not have known about.

"I asked him how he had known. He hesitated to come clean, but he then confessed how he had linked my WhatsApp to his account. I freaked out. That was psychotic because he invaded my privacy," she said.
