    IS it even possible to hack whatsapp?

    In any case remove the app from your phone > find another phone without whatsapp > install whatsapp and enter your own number (from the hacked account) > this should register your number again and kick out anyone else. After this you can download whatsapp on your own phone again and go through the steps

    If it continues, I would suggest doing the same with her phone.

    (Doesn't necessarily have to be a phone that never had whatsapp. Just find someone that's cool with you deleting their app so you can download it and use it to register your number)

    The only way to "steal" a WhatsApp account is to get access to the SMS sent to that phone number. The easiest way to fix it is to re-register your device. WhatsApp also has two-step verification now, so you might want to turn that on.

    This would only happen if the Whatsapp account details were compromised and were being used by someone else. Change the account password to be more secure and alert Whatsapp so that they can help.
