Users of WhatsApp are bombarded with spam authentication messages

According to the latest news, WhatsApp users are sending spam verification messages which are actually trying to steal accounts and related data.

To verify the account, the user must enter a special code. “Prove that you are human by sending the code you just received from WhatsApp. Otherwise, your account will be deactivated tomorrow,” read the message requesting the message.

WhatsApp didn’t send a message requesting a review in a recent tweet, according to WABetaInfo.

According to WABetaInfo, the service does not require a six-digit code to validate an account. These are often random accounts that only send malicious messages and allow hackers to steal data.
