New Delhi. WhatsApp has warned its users to beware of fake and malicious versions of WhatsApp. The company is asking to be aware of the fake version of its messaging app. It is worth mentioning that WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps all over the world, which makes it easy for scammers to trick users through different techniques.
Will Cathcart, CEO of the instant messaging app, has urged people on Twitter not to use the modified version of WhatsApp, as it can put users in big trouble.
The WhatsApp chief has tweeted saying that the company’s security team has found a malicious version of WhatsApp, named ‘Hey WhatsApp’, which offers the latest features outside the Google Play Store. Will warns that this scam is perpetrated by Hemodes to steal personal details from a person’s mobile system, and that the fake app is only available for download through third-party third-party sources.
