WhatsApp Pink Scam

Numerous individuals are receiving messages that promise an update called 'WhatsApp Pink.'

These viral messages entice WhatsApp users to click on a link that’s provided and download the associated app.

This, unfortunately, grants the scamsters access to the phone’s data, allowing them to steal it.

The stolen data may include sensitive information such as bank details, contact numbers, and photos.

The surge in such spam messages has prompted the Mumbai Police to issue an advisory, warning people about this scam.

The Mumbai Police explained that the scammers first send a fake link disguised as an official update to the user.

Once the user clicks on this link, it can result in the installation of malicious software on the user’s phone.

Subsequently, the infected phone can be exploited to infect other phones belonging to the user's contacts through WhatsApp.
