WhatsApp is Crashing? Beware of the Spam Message'Don't Touch Here

However, a new WhatsApp message bomb is so powerful that it crashes even the operating system.

As you can see in the screenshots leaked, WhatsApp is now working on the Greeting Message feature, which sends a greeting message to a user either on their first message or after 14 days of inactivity. This new URL will let you access chats from only those users you want to speak to with the simple filling in of their phone number.

Another message reads as follows - "If you touch this black dot then your WhatsApp will hang" and also includes a downward pointing finger at a dot. The hidden symbols are between the emoji and the quotation mark.

Tom Scott, a relatively popular YouTuber who covers multiple topics ranging from science to computers, posted a brief explanation of how the message bug works. "Tapping on a portion of the text will basically make the app "expand" the hidden symbols, potentially overloading the app and even the OS", SlashGear explains.

While sending this nefarious message to others is certainly not condoned, you should also exercise caution if attempting to view the seemingly innocent looking line of text on Pastebin out of mere curiosity as it may also hang the browser tab or cause the browser itself to become unresponsive. It is only after you tap on the message that your WhatsApp app may crash or freeze.

Android smartphones with massive processing power might be able to survive the message with just a hanging WhatsApp, but other devices will likely see WhatsApp crash. "There seem to be two variants of this WhatsApp message being forwarded". However, it is still recommended to not click on them. If your entire smartphone is locked, you will need to restart it by pressing and holding the power button for a few seconds. This is not for the first time that we have come across such spam messages making round on WhatsApp.

It is best to avoid such messages and delete it from your beloved smartphones.
