Title: WhatsApp Pink Scam
description: WhatsApp is an application that nowadays has almost every person installed on their smartphone. It is also worth adding that WhatsApp is one of the most used instant messaging services on Android and iOS smartphones. With several layers of security and end-to-end encryption, WhatsApp has always been a target for hackers, and it is still the case today. Recently, we have come across several scams that put your privacy at risk. Unfortunately, there are more and more of them day by day. It turned out that a vulnerability was discovered that allowed a hacker to suspend the account. Now, a new scam called WhatsApp Pink has found its way to WhatsApp that allows a hacker to take control of the account. What is this scam? Scammers send a link via WhatsApp Pink that claims to change the green WhatsApp theme to pink. The proposal is tempting, but unfortunately the theme will not turn pink at all.
The link you click will give hackers full control of your account instead of changing your WhatsApp theme. What happens when the user clicks on the link?
If the user clicks on the link, they will be redirected to a download page containing an APK file similar to the original. After complete installation, the device becomes infected. Warnings against this scam can be found on many websites and on social media. What else is known? WhatsApp confirmed the presence of the new virus and advised users to be careful with such links or messages. Knowing this topic, we warn you very well - do not click on links that offer excellent functions. It is also not recommended to click on links that tempt with attractive promotions and large discounts. Avoiding such fake messages and links is the best way to protect yourself from any kind of scam.
