Pune, January 07, 2019: If you also have a link to install the upgrade version of ‘WhatsApp’, ‘Gold’, be careful, because it is a fake message. Actually, this message says that if you download it and install it in your phone then you can send photos to about 100 people at a time and you can delete the sent messages at any time. But there is nothing like that. If you are getting this type of message, then ignore it or your data may be in danger.
WhatsApp says that no Golden Version has been launched from them. In this case, this hacker can be done and if you open this message then your phone may get a virus, as well as your personal information, may leak.
Manish Kumawat, Director at Cryptus Cyber Security Pvt Ltd commented,
“WhatsApp Gold is one of the best ways to avoid virus messages if you have a message to upgrade to WhatsApp with better features, do not click on it. Also, do not forward such messages. People spread the message through the hoax, by spreading such message forward.
However, this is not the first time that hackers have tried to steal users’ personal information through the Fake Upgrade Whatsapp Application. Even before this kind of message has become viral. In such a case, if you have installed Whatsapp, then immediately reset your phone from factory data.”
