WhatsApp Warns Users Against Downloading Fake Versions of App

Meta-owned instant messaging service WhatsApp has warned users against downloading fake versions of the application, saying users’ security can be compromised by downloading such versions.

The Head of WhatsApp Will Cathcart, while taking to Twitter, revealed that the company’s security team found a fake version of WhatsApp outside of Google play that was offering new features to users.

“Recently our security team discovered hidden malware within apps – offered outside of Google Play — from a developer called “HeyMods” that included “Hey WhatsApp” and others,” he tweeted.
