Mumbai Police has issued a red alert for Android users who downloaded "WhatsApp Pink," a fake version of WhatsApp.

The scam involves a hoax message circulating among WhatsApp users, offering a new version of the app with a pink interface and additional features.

Downloading WhatsApp Pink can lead to serious consequences, including the hacking of mobile devices through malicious software.

Consequences of downloading WhatsApp Pink include unauthorized access and misuse of contact numbers and saved pictures, financial losses, exploitation of personal credentials, and spam messages.

Users are advised to immediately uninstall the fake app from their Android devices by going to the settings menu, selecting "apps," finding the WhatsApp Pink logo, and uninstalling it.

It is important to never click on links received from unknown sources without proper verification or authentication.

Applications should always be downloaded from official app stores such as Google Play or the iOS App Store, or from legitimate websites.

Users should refrain from sharing personal details or financial information online, as it can be easily misused by cybercriminals.

It is crucial for Android users to exercise caution, be aware of potential cyber threats, and take necessary precautions to safeguard themselves in the digital world.
