    Beware of Whatsapp 4G Hoax

    Editor
    Well, it's all fun and games until someone sends you an invite to a potentially dangerous application!

    The latest annoying piece of dodgy software to be plaguing smartphone users, is "Whatsapp 4G" Promising a host of new features including video calling. Thankfully an 'ethical hacker' has checked it over and as you'd expect, is suggesting we go nowhere near it. It even asks you to share it with 15 friends during the install process

    There is absolutely no ties to the legit Whatsapp application, so it's important that you get rid of it ASAP, and if you think you know someone that might have done this or maybe even sent you an invite... get them to bin it off too. Nobody likes malware, right?

    I mean, look at this! Totally legit (in opposite land)

    I try my best

    I know what you mean though, you'd be surprised though! I've seen all sorts from my social media friends that I thought were more savvy! There's always one

    I got sent a message from my friend to install WhatsApp 4g and it stated you can private message without showing your number so I asked him so why didnt you send without your number lol then send me a message without your number. Haven't heard from him yet lol it's an obvious scam
