Beware of fake Whatsapp upgrade made by hackers

Do you use Whatsapp? If so, be extra careful about allowing upgrades offering a ‘Whatsapp Gold’ service. According to NewsTalk, users may receive a message saying:

“Hey. Finally Secret Whatsapp golden version has been leaked. This version is used only by big celebrities. Now we can use it too”.

The message then provides a link, that when clicked, will install malware which gives hackers information from your phone. Whatever you do, don’t click it!

The upgrade does however sound enticing, as it offers the option to delete messages from people’s phones after you’ve sent them. If only it were real! The message may come from a false app developer called ‘Whatsapp Plus’.

According to the legitimate Whatsapp developer, they have no relation whatsoever to WhatsApp Plus and they do not support WhatsApp Plus in any way.
