A WhatsApp Message That Has Been Crashing IPhone And Android Users

WhatsApp is Crashing? Beware of the Spam Message'Don't Touch Here WhatsApp
Delores Daniels | 08 May, 2018, 01:44

We're not really sure why people would create and forward messages that do nothing except crash your app or your smartphone. This new URL will let you access chats from only those users you want to speak to with the simple filling in of their phone number.

However the second message communicate accurately that what will happen when you tap on a black dot, which is a part of the message. Another message says, "This is very interesting" with an emoji of a laughing face. It's not as dire as needing to uninstall reinstall but it is a hassle if you'll have to restart both the app and your phone, especially if you need to send important messages to contacts.

WhatsApp spam messages are nothing new on the internet. Simply avoid these type of text messages or use another messaging app.

But fortunately, it doesn't seem as though the WhatsApp bug will wipe your handset or require you to completely reboot the device.

Although seemingly brief, the messages contain tens of thousands of invisible "left-to-right" and "right-to-left" control characters that can overload WhatsApp, causing the app to freeze up or the whole mobile operating system to go down.

A forwarded message is doing the rounds of WhatsApp which claims to hang the app for sometime. At the moment, WhatsApp is working on the Greeting Message, which sends a greeting message to a customer. However, it is still recommended to not click on them.

Although it might appear at first that the black spot itself is causing WhatsApp to momentarily hang once someone taps on it, India Times explained that there's something else in play that makes the prank effective, if supposedly harmless in the long run.

Have you already received this cheeky message?

You won't be able to open WhastApp and other messaging apps may be inaccessible too. There are also complaints of Android phones being disrupted by the message bombs.
