    According to cyber security research group Citizen Lab, hackers use different methods to install Pegasus on a device. In one of these ways, an 'exploit link' is sent to the target device via a message. When a user clicks on this link, Pegasus is automatically installed.

    When Pegasus was installed through WhatsApp in 2019, hackers took a different approach. At the time, hackers took advantage of a bug in WhatsApp's video call feature. The hackers made video calls to the target phone from a fake WhatsApp account. In the meantime a code was installed in the Pegasus phone.
