WhatsApp Pink is a virus, not an app makeover — what to do if you get a link

A new WhatsApp scam promises a pink makeover for the app on Android, but don’t be tempted to download it: It’s actually malware that can steal your data. 

Internet security researcher Rajshekhar Rajaharia flagged up the scam on Twitter, warning users not to be taken in by its promise to change WhatsApp’s green theme to pink. What’s more, the scam presents itself as an official update — so if you see the APK download link that’s being spread in WhatsApp groups, do not click on it.
