New Delhi. WhatsApp has warned its users to beware of fake and malicious versions of WhatsApp. The company asks to be aware of the fake version of its messaging application. It is worth mentioning that WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging applications all over the world, which makes it easy for scammers to trick users through different techniques.
Will Cathcart, CEO of the instant messaging app, urged people on Twitter not to use the modified version of WhatsApp as it can get users into big trouble.

The head of WhatsApp tweeted that the company’s security team found a malicious version of WhatsApp, called ‘Hey WhatsApp’, which offers the latest features outside of the Google Play Store. Will warns that Hemodes runs this scam to steal personal data from a person’s mobile system, and that the fake app is only available for download through third-party sources.
