WhatsApp logo Turn Red – It’s a Hoax, Just Avoid it

A chain message has scared all whatsapp users, lately. I have been getting pings on Facebook from friends asking if this is true or not, as if, I’m working with Whatsapp. Anyways, for those who still think that these messages are genuine and are supposed to spread here is my review to it.

If you have been regular on whatsapp you certainly have heard about “whatsapp logo turn red” or “whatsapp is shutting down shortly” if yes, then there is nothing to worry on, Whatsapp have already confirmed that all such messages are just a hoax you are not supposed to believe on without any official confirmation. Here is a copy of that chain messages:

WhatsApp is going to cost us money soon. The only way that it will stay free is if you are a frequent user i.e. you have at least 10 people you are chatting with. To become a frequent user send this message to 10 people who receive it (2 ticks) and your WhatsApp logo should turn Red to indicate a frequent user.

Then this:

“Whatsapp is shutting down on 28th jan Message from Jim Balsamic (CEO of Whatsapp) we have had an over usage of user names on whatsapp Messenger. We are requesting all users to forward this message to their entire contact list. If you do not forward this message, we will take it as your account is invalid and it will be deleted within the next 48 hours. Please DO NOT ignore this message or whatsapp will no longer recognize your activation. If you wish to re-activate your account after it has been deleted, a charge of 25.00 will be added to your monthly bill. We are also aware of the issue involving the pictures updates not showing. We are working diligently at fixing this problem and it will be up and running as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation from the Whatsapp team”

As people believe on such messages easily without checking any official confirmation it gets spread from one user to other straightforwardly. Only solution to this problem is start researching before believing on any such hoax. Make sure you are confirming it with the official announcement.
