WhatsApp Gold, another unofficial version of the famous messaging app has been trending and causing problems for users. Assuring users a plethora of features that the Facebook-owned app does not provide, the app has scammed a lot of people.
So what is it all about? Here is everything you need to know about WhatsApp Gold.
The 'Invite only' concept worked well for some, while for others it was a disaster. But WhatsApp Gold is available to users in a similar way. You can install and use it only if you're lucky.
Not everything is Gold!
Getting the official WhatsApp messenger is easy. But if you want to get the Gold version, the URL is just what you would expect from third-party apps. But it's still not the official one, so you can definitely ignore it.
Oh My, Celebrities!
With WhatsApp Gold, you can chat with your favorite celebrity. Many of them have moved to the premium service. But it's not true, and many users were conned after they used the app.
If you remember the infamous WhatsApp+ that went viral, WhatsApp Gold too gives you similar features. Changing themes, sending 100 pics at the same time, and best of all you could make video calls. These features are in testing stages for the official, and will soon be available to all users.
Installing either the WhatsApp+ or WhatsApp Gold versions will leave your privacy and personal data open to hackers. It can track your movements, install malware that can capture any data that you input into your browsers or online forms. Before long, your bank accounts are hacked and you become broke.
WhatsApp has previously warned users that WhatsApp+ was developed by third-party developers and that any user information was open to being misused by others too. The same goes to say about WhatsApp Gold. No official launch has been made and neither is the app available on Play Store or App Store.
