WhatsApp Gold is a trap – don't download it

WhatsApp users have been invited to join an exclusive club called WhatsApp Gold, but you shouldn’t download it. It turns out that the download link is being sent by hackers who hope to gain access to your phone.

The message invites WhatsApp users to upgrade to a Gold version of the app, which it claims is used by elite celebrities and offers features like video chats and the ability to send up to 100 pictures at once. It even offers the option to delete messages after you’ve sent them, which may prove useful for some.

The message invites WhatsApp users to upgrade to a Gold version of the app, which it claims is used by elite celebrities and offers features like video chats and the ability to send up to 100 pictures at once. It even offers the option to delete messages after you’ve sent them, which may prove useful for some.

However, downloading this “upgrade” instead downloads malware, which gives hackers access to your device and details. If you receive this message, you’re advised to delete it immediately. If you already attempted to download this upgrade, you should install antivirus software.
