Over 1 million downloaded fake WhatsApp, checkout if you are among

An app was pretending to be an update of WhatsApp, over one million people were tricked into downloading it.

The app is available on playstore and is still there, check the screenshot below.


However, after its illegitimacy was obviously flagged by Reddit users, the apps named changed to “Dual Whatsweb Update” and the Res-icon was also switched.

Unlike many other fake apps, the sole aim of the developer was to create revenue through Ad views. You can also see the amount of WhatsApp branded apps that have got past Google’s curation. 


Android users becareful with the way you download things out there, we all know Google playstore is the best secured store for downloading app but things still happens or you can just get yourself an iPhone and be secured.
