Scammers are always in a process to find a way to hack people’s personal information. A few days back Whatsapp has turned out the video-calling feature for Android, iOS and Windows smartphones. The feature was made available to the users via an update on the respective smartphone stores. However, this new rollout has created new opportunities for the scammers.
The link that is circulating consists of other malicious links inviting people to download Whatsapp video-calling feature. These links also ask the users to download Group video calling feature, something that Whatsapp hasn’t made official yet.
The malicious links consist of steps such as you are invited to try Whatsapp video calling feature and only people with an invitation can enable this feature. Once you click on that link, you are asked to invite more friends for video-calling to activate your device.
By clicking on that provided link, you will be directed to a fake website which consists of malicious code that is designed to download all your personal data. On Whatsapp so many malicious links get often shared with claims of exclusive features and the one among them is latest Video calling download link.
Earlier there was a Whatsapp Gold link that had gone viral which claims that it offers all particular form of the app, but in real there is no such gold version of Whatsapp. Remember the video-calling update is automatically updated on Android, iOS and Windows phone users via respective stores.
