After a long awaiting, WhatsApp has released its much anticipated video calling feature.
On November 15, WhatsApp introduced its new video calling feature.
Taking cue from it, spammers developed a fake website in order to hack the users information.
WhatsApp users across the globe began receiving an invitation link to enable the feature, soon after the its launch.
Once the WhatsApp user clicks on such invitation link, he is redirected to a webpage to enable the video calling feature.
This spam website looks quite believable. The webpage has been designed such that even the most vigilant observant can also get deceive.
User will be directed to a new webpage which requires user information for verification, as soon as ‘enable’ option is clicked.
Then the user would be informed to share as well as invite four other contacts to enable this feature with the help of the same link.
Though the process and page looks credible, clicking on this invitation link can expose the user to spammers.
User should update his/her WhatsApp app through Apple Store or Google Playstore, to avoid hacking.
The Video calling feature will be enabled automatically, once it gets updated
