Cybersecurity experts have warned smartphone users to install an application called “WhatsApp Pink”.

Experts confirm that installing WhatsApp Pink on your phone threatens to steal your data.

According to the aitnews website, once installed WhatsApp Pink allows hackers to access your phone.

The malicious application has no relationship with the WhatsApp platform or the Facebook company.

This malicious application defrauds “WhatsApp” users by sending them a message containing a link that offers them the ability to use the “WhatsApp” application in pink, instead of the known color of the original application, green.

The fraudulent message includes displaying new features to give some credibility to the fake application with a link to an official update from “WhatsApp”, but the reality is that instead of modifications to the original application of “WhatsApp”, the link moves the user to a page asking him to install the malicious application that bears the name ” WhatsApp Pink, although there is no relationship of the malicious application with the “WhatsApp” or the “Facebook” company.

A security researcher posted a tweet reporting on WhatsApp Pink trading, and also provided a few screenshots showing how the malicious app mimics the WhatsApp interface to trick users.

He said, WhatsApp Pink is largely aimed at police and media professionals, and a link to download the app was initially sent to police officers in Delhi.

The researcher warned users not to install any application other than those available through the official application store from Google or Apple.

And it seems that the bad actors who posted the message about WhatsApp Pink have used various links.

However, users are advised not to open any links that purport to bring any new looks or features to WhatsApp.

WhatsApp said: Anyone can receive an unusual, unspecified, or suspicious message via any service, including e-mail, and we strongly encourage everyone to exercise caution before responding or sharing
