A new scam is spreading Network. Its name is WhatsApp Gold, a supposed “premium” version of WhatsApp only celebrity in use but someone has got secretly and shares it with you, the above premise sounds ridiculous and of itself, but that does not mean that more than one has fallen into the trap. Gold WhatsApp is “distributed” by messages like the following:
Hey finally the secret version of WhatsApp gold has been leaked. This version only uses the super-famous. Now we can use we.
Of course such a premium version of WhatsApp simply does not exist, only one WhatsApp, which use you and me. The same used by the famous and the not famous, and you can download both Google Play and from its website.
What is supposed to WhatsApp Gold?
Although WhatsApp Gold as such does not officially exist anywhere (except this sad attempt monitoring software), there is an official folklore about the great features included, a list that includes more fantasy trilogy of books of Game of Thrones.
This is what you can theoretically do WhatsApp Gold, if any. This is a non-exhaustive list, as some texts on WhatsApp Gold extend almost indefinitely…
- Video calls
- Sending hundred images at once
- Delete messages after sending them
- A test bans
- Customizable icons in HD
- More emoji
The list itself is not too impressive, but it is probably the curiosity and the fact that it is a secret version that captures the attention of users.
What is really WhatsApp Gold?
We have clearly not WhatsApp Gold: an official version, but what is it? This question is much more difficult to answer than the previous one, because there is no real and official Gold WhatsApp to guide us. Gold WhatsApp is rather an illusion, a recurring scam which we cannot deliver.
The oldest of the place recall MSN Messenger, the former messenger application par excellence. With the popularity also came scams, which was then used to be the style of MSN is running out of available accounts, do this and this so you do not delete the account and get a premium version: then the MSN icon is blue. Ridiculous, right? For WhatsApp Gold is the same but with WhatsApp.
The difference scams Messenger is that WhatsApp Gold has some part of reality, in the form of a reincarnation of the old WhatsApp Plus, the MOD WhatsApp that was eventually abandoned after Whatsapp started to ban users of this type of apps.
“Physical” versions of WhatsApp Gold are probably based on WhatsApp Plus, but while WhatsApp Plus was a project that its author knew and could follow his progress, WhatsApp Gold can literally have anything inside.
In summary, WhatsApp Gold is a modified version of WhatsApp that probably should not use it you’re done with your account banned the service, it does not really work and you have no guarantee that you will not spy on you.
I tried to use it … and I could not
To avoid that you’re done installing garbage on your mobile, I decided to do it myself. The main problem is in fact finding WhatsApp Gold for download. I will not put any link, but after a good while Googling I managed to find some download links to choose from WhatsApp Gold 5.5 and 3.0.
Mere download is a laborious and risky process. It’s the kind of pages that you open a million tabs advertising; floating advertising in the middle of the screen and your phone alerts may be at risk. Patiently, I’ve managed to download and install.
After installation, the first screens of information I remember both as WhatsApp Plus. Although the alleged version 5.5 installed, WhatsApp Gold shows that it is based on WhatsApp 2.12.437, which released official version February this year.
The problem is that this version has already expired, and just open the application can do nothing but download the official client WhatsApp. Changing the date you can access the phone verification window, but the check never works.
So while WhatsApp want to try Gold, chances are you cannot. It is a modification of WhatsApp, but has not been able to modify the system of checking dates or discharge point when it is expired their own servers. As there is no official website, you can take too long to make the APK, and then there will be expired.
Why not you should try WhatsApp Gold?
Are you still not convinced why you should try WhatsApp Gold? Even it is positive and thinking that WhatsApp Gold is a pure and clean modified version of WhatsApp, created with all ethical guarantees and nothing to hide: does it really what you would earn with it?
WhatsApp protocol is the one that is, and amendments to third parties cannot change it. If WhatsApp has no video calling now, no WhatsApp Gold is the world going to get. S applications that already exist and engage WhatsApp or so to do something similar and you can do with the official version.
WhatsApp requires a huge amount of permits, and they are also present in WhatsApp Gold. You will like more or less than these permits are in the hands of Facebook, but if you think about giving it to some mysterious unknown developers probably have more to worry about.
“I would’ve installed: now what do I do?”
If you have fallen into the trap, do not panic. First of all, uninstalls WhatsApp Gold and returns to the official version of WhatsApp, Telegram, Messenger or any other messaging application you like.
WhatsApp Gold has the potential capacity for your data stolen sorry, I spammed your contacts and many other things that are very scary, but this does not mean that you have done. The best thing here is to do some research by consulting with your friends if they have received spam from you and that you review what confidential information could be accessed.
Change your passwords is always a good idea in case of doubt, particularly those of Google and Facebook. Otherwise, you probably do not have much more to worry about, although it would not hurt you to review in Settings – Applications whether any additional application may have installed.
