Scam on Whatsapp! Users of WhatsApp are currently receiving spam messages that threaten to steal their identities, and they have been warned to be careful of so-called “fake alerts” in order to keep their accounts secure.
According to WABetaInfo, users have reported receiving WhatsApp messages demanding that they send a particular code for authentication. “Prove that you are a human by submitting the code you just received from WhatsApp, or your account will be deleted tomorrow,” the message says.
Please don’t do it. Please don’t do it. Please don’t do it. Be wary of this WhatsApp scam and make sure you have Two-Step Verification allowed in WhatsApp Settings > Account!” Another tweet was read.
Another attempt to steal your WhatsApp account: "prove that you're a human sending the code you've just received from WhatsApp, or your account will be disabled tomorrow".— WABetaInfo (@WABetaInfo) March 30, 2021
Please. Please. Please. Be careful and enable the Two Step Verification in WhatsApp Settings > Account! https://t.co/yKvj2zaVnR
Whatsapp is not informing you that your account is about to expire. Unofficial WhatsApp accounts that ask for your 6-digit code should be blocked and recorded. Note: WhatsApp Help will NEVER ask you for your 6-digit code!,” WABetaInfo wrote in a tweet.
Apart from that, social media companies advise users to stay away from spam links that offer a discount or donation in exchange for clicking and answering questions. As a result, the links are an effort to gain access to the user’s account or steal personal information, both of which have the potential to be lethal in the future.
