Credulous WhatsApp customers are being tricked into downloading ‘WhatsApp Gold‘, an apparently ‘distinctive’ version of the app which really infects mobiles with malware.
Some of the app’s customers have mentioned receiving messages urging them to join the provider through the WhatsApp Gold website, which is related within the message.
The app’s greater capabilities (which the scammers claim have simplest previously been available to pinnacle celebrities) include the ability to send masses of snap shots straight away, new emojis, video calling, more desirable security capabilities and extra customisation alternatives.
obviously, the whole lot is nonsense. Downloading the program from the internet site will in reality infect your smartphone with malware, likely allowing cybercriminals to scouse borrow your information or song your moves and activity.
There may be been a spate of WhatsApp Gold messages recently, however the rip-off has existed in one-of-a-kind forms for some time, now and again under the name ‘WhatsApp Plus’.
