Whatsapp Gold: A new online scam

In recent days Whatsapp users are getting a message that says, “ Get Whatsapp Gold” , if you get this message don’t download the app because it is a scam.

 

Users of the famous messaging application Whatsapp are facing a new scam called Whatsapp Gold. Most of Whatsapp users are getting that the gold version has been leaked and you can get it for free now. It is also offering features like free video calls, the option to send 100 pictures at once and the option to delete any sent message any time. People are lured by the idea that it is going to be used by just a few important celebrities but they can also get it now.

 

People are constantly getting this message but beware this is a dangerous scam because there is no such thing as Whatsapp gold in the market and the current version of Whatsapp will update automatically.

 

The link given in the message will take you to a separate website and installing the software is also harmful as your data can be stolen and your whereabouts can be tracked and monitored.
