Beware! A new whatsapp bug has been found. Today, someone sent a contact or say contact virus in our Whatsapp group. I don’t know what was his intention but it was painful. Those members who did not have latest version of Whatsapp, were not able to open that group again. Just because of this virus, I had to create a new group and added all members in that group. It can happen with anyone. So, I thought to write about it as it’s really a serious issue if you have a discussion group.
First , I request to all my visitors who have any friends or family group & other site owners who have any Whatsapp group to promote their content. Please ask your Members to update their Whatsapp and remove immediately if someone send such contact in your group.
How This Virus Works?
If someone create a contact with much amount of smileys and send to anyone, His/her Whatsapp will stop responding. Buy using this contact virus anyone can hang your whatsapp easily. Either you have to wait for some minutes to respond it or close Whatsapp and delete that chat without opening.
What to do if someone have sent such virus
First, Open that group and wait for a while till it open and clear chat. If your whatsapp is still not responding then let some other member send any msg in that group. Once that contact virus scrolled up in chat, you can easily open that group but don’t scroll up. Now clear chat. Use you can use Whatsapp Web if you are unable to clear chat in Mobile.
Whatsapp have one more bug, if you don’t delete your chat for some days or say months (Means after having 15-20k msgs). You will not be able to clear chat, So clear your chat regularly.
