“Download WhatsApp Rosa”, but this is a scam

Frauds now also go through WhatsApp, which is nothing new. However, the latest gimmick is decisively insidious because it presents itself as a request to update the instant messaging app. In fact it is a link – in words – that allows you to download the new “pink” version of WhatsApp. On the back, of course there is a trap, because clicking on the link will open the doors of your smartphone to a malware, which can steal our sensitive data.

Data theft

“Once the new application is installed – explains the legal information site Law for all -, the application suddenly disappears from the main screen of the device and becomes active in the background of stealing the data of the victims. “

Solution: Uninstall the app immediately

What to do if you fall into a trap? The legal advice for everyone is to immediately uninstall WhatsApp Ping and close all active sessions from the web version of WhatsApp which is accessible from the official application settings and remove the browser memory.
