Are You Part of The 1million Peoplle Who Downloaded Fake WhatsApp?



Maybe this is probably why some you are experiencing all manner of pop ups, annoying ads and viruses on your smartphone… perhaps you are using a fake whatsapp.

An app pretending to be an update of WhatsApp was downloaded over 1 million times on Google play store before it was removed by Google.

The app, dubbed "Update WhatsApp Messenger," appeared as if it was developed by the real firm behind the program,"WhatsApp Inc.".

However Reddit users, looking through the app's source code, noticed that the fake version used a special, invisible character at the end of the developer's name, so to appear identical to the legitimate one to the average user's eye.

Redditors also claim that the app displayed ads, and was potentially capable of installing software on the users' devices.

However, those who constantly received updates from the WhatsApp app they have always used will not be in any way affected by this.
