The charge on WhatsApp has not even started and there are already many rumors about it. Among them, it is possible to mention a rumor that circulates in the app: “Confirmed… Tomorrow the free messages will end, and they will start charging for Whatsapp at R$ 0.37. Resend this message to more than 3 groups, and you will get 100% free for life. Pay attention to the ball, because it will turn green, do it and see. I’ve already sent it.”
However, according to WhatsApp, the message is true. It also advised users not to pay any cents for sending any messages. This is said because the app only uses the device’s internet connection to send and receive content.
Watch out for scams!
If an offer that seems good enough to be true has arrived on your WhatsApp, be suspicious. The same goes for any other digital channel. Even if the alleged advantage offered came from a friend or relative, it is always worth bearing in mind that this person may have been hacked, and on the other side of the screen is, in fact, a scammer.
To give you an idea, a survey by the digital security company PSafe, carried out in 2020, estimated that, in October alone, 453,000 people had their WhatsApp cloned or had their account falsified – about 15,000 victims per day, on average. So, be careful when clicking on suspicious links, or charges that you don’t know exactly what they mean. First of all, the best thing to do is to find out what it really is, especially when it involves money.
