WhatsApp gets another "crash message" that hangs app and phone

WhatsApp

The poster named "DieHoe" warns users to use it carefully, although if it crashes people's WhatsApp and makes their phone hang, why would you want to forward this kind of message. Well, you've heard it right. This will be especially useful for those who access WhatsApp web on their laptop or computer browsers.

Recently, it was reported that WhatsApp will undergo major change and the company will roll out new features in the messenger.

The new feature is available for Android 2.18.138 and needs users to update their app to the said beta version. But if you type in an invalid number, you will get an error message that reads "Phone number shared via URL is invalid". The domain address is accessible on both smartphone browsers and desktop browsers. If you do not want your phone to be blocked, simply do not click on the message, or delete it directly, but if you have already pressed it or want to do it, you should know that there is no issue at this time since there is no virus attached with the message.

A set of buggy messages are making rounds on WhatsApp these days. That means that the prank does work, though it doesn't appear to have any long-lasting negative effect on the app, nor does it seem to pose any danger to a user's mobile device.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp has been rolling out regular updates for the app at a steady pace. WhatsApp director Mubarik Imam announced the features at the ongoing F8 conference.

WhatsApp is the world's most popular messaging app because of the premium features that it offers.

The GDPR implementation comes as a measure to curb user data collection in the wake of the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica controversy and post its implementation, WhatsApp will allow its users to download the data it collects from them.
