WhatsApp rolled out video-calling feature for Android, iOS and Windows users earlier this week. The feature was long anticipated and can be downloaded via update available to all users. However, the rollout of this popular feature has led to scamsters circulating malicious links inviting people to download video-calling. Interestingly, these links also invite users to download group-calling feature, something that WhatsApp itself hasn’t made official yet. The malicious link reads, “You’re invited to try WhatsApp Video Calling feature. Only people with the invitation can enable this feature.” Click on the link and it will ask you to invite more friends for video-calling to activate on your device However, we’d like to warn you not to fall prey to these scams. There’s always the risk of scamsters gaining access to your personal contacts, mails, documents etc. While WhatsApp did introduce an invite system for activating its voice-calling feature last year, the company is going with a simple update for video-calling. However, looks like scamsters took note of WhatsApp’s earlier move to fool people in to clicking on malicious links this time. To recall, the update is automatically available to Android, iOS as well as Windows users via respective app stores.
