If you are using the WhatsApp application, you have most likely received a message in the last days which was asking you to upgrade to the “Gold” version of WhatsApp. If you didn’t receive it yet, then you should know that the message “informs” you that the “secret” WhatsApp golden version has been leaked and it was used only by big celebrities until now.

At the same time, the message tells you that “normal” users can now use it also. According to the message, the WhatsApp Golden version comes with some of the features that are not available yet on the “normal” version of the application, such as: Video Calling, delete messages that you’ve sent by mistake, sent more than 100 pictures at once and more. The same message “informs” you that the WhatsApp Gold version can be activated only via invites that the “person” who is messaging you it is actually inviting you.

Unfortunately, we have some bad news for the users who have already installed the WhatsApp Golden version on their devices, as this is a hoax and WhatsApp hasn’t released any “Golden” version of the application, so you’ve been tricked by hackers.

In other words, there are high chances that you have just installed a malware on your Android device, which you will need to get rid of as soon as possible. We suggest you to install an antivirus on your Android device, as there are high chances that hackers could access your personal data. It is not the first time when hackers are trying to steal personal information from users by releasing unofficial WhatsApp versions. We suggest you to install and update applications only via Google Play Store, as this is the safest way to keep your mobile device malware-free.

Have you installed the WhatsApp Golden version on your Android device?
