Why You Shouldn’t Upgrade To WhatsApp Gold(Must Read)


If you see an exclusive invitation to WhatsApp Gold, don’t be too keen to become one of the elite.

The upgrade, which is allegedly used by celebs, claims to offer new features such as the ability to have video chats, send 100 pictures at once and, tantalisingly, the ability to delete messages after you have sent them.

People have been sent a link offering to install a new version of the messaging app, but don’t be fooled.

The download actually leads to malware, which could infect your phone allowing hackers to spy on your details Metro reports.

A friend sent me the link recently and I saw a message that read: ‘Hey Finally Secret Whatsapp golden version has been leaked, This version is used only by big celebrities. Now we can use it too’. Of course I knew it was a phony as it didn’t come from the playstore, so I deleted the page immediately. It left me wondering though how many people fell for the scam.

In reality, the exclusive upgrade does not actually exist, and what you’ll actually be downloading is software which could open your phone up to hackers.

So far, it has mainly infected Android devices. Those who have downloaded it are advised to install antivirus software and only install apps via the Google Play Store in future.

If you see an ‘invite’, delete the message…fast.
