Beware! This new WhatsApp bug can crash your Android phones

HIGH ALERT WhatsApp users! Beware of spam message 'Don't Touch Here'

What is The Black Circle of Whatsapp? Dont Panic!

However, users may be interested in what makes it work, particularly because it does not look like a message that leads to WhatsApp crashing Android devices.

As you can see in the screenshots leaked, WhatsApp is now working on the Greeting Message feature, which sends a greeting message to a user either on their first message or after 14 days of inactivity.

You might start to feel pretty popular whenever your Whatsapp starts to bling this bank holiday.

Another message reads as follows - "If you touch this black dot then your WhatsApp will hang" and also includes a downward pointing finger at a dot. It's not as dire as needing to uninstall reinstall but it is a hassle if you'll have to restart both the app and your phone, especially if you need to send important messages to contacts.

How Does The WhatsApp Black Dot Message Work?

How Many Greencore Group plc (LON:GNC)'s Analysts Are Bearish?
The company rating was maintained by Canaccord Genuity on Tuesday, March 20. "Buy" rating has 2, "Sell" are 0, while 0 are "Hold". It improved, as 26 investors sold CRH plc shares while 33 reduced holdings. 5 funds opened positions while 7 raised stakes.

Just a few days ago, a spam forwarded message was making the rounds and even though it actually has the "don't touch here" part of the message, even if you do not actually touch, it still caused WhatsApp to hang and/or crash. Or, you can use another messaging app.

But fortunately, it doesn't seem as though the WhatsApp bug will wipe your handset or require you to completely reboot the device. You might have even suspected as much if you already noticed that tapping anywhere on the message - and not only on the black dot - triggers the bug. In some cases, it freezes the app.

As for WhatsApp, the message in question is reportedly being forwarded in two variants. The bad thing about message bombs is that they crash the user's smartphone after the user clicked on the message.

On the most modern and powerful smartphones the bug simply blocks WhatsApp (or the application in which you received that message) and you just have to wait for it to close by itself or close it manually. It is better to delete such messages beforehand. There are also complaints of Android phones being disrupted by the message bombs.
