"**ALERT**ALERT* Whats app requesting users to upgrade to latest version as; its vulnerability found."

Post #303035230 by Neo on Thursday 16th of May 2019 10:31:01 PM

Everyone should always update their apps as soon as new releases are available, as a matter of standard practice.

For example, this WhatsApp update was pushed out and automatically installed on my devices the same day it was announced.

And don't forget to regularly make backups of your data.
