An app pretending to be an update of WhatsApp, over 1 million people were tricked into downloading it

The app is available on playstore and is still there, check the screenshot below

However, after this illegitimacy was obviously flassed by Reddit users, the app name changed to "Dual Whatsweb Update" and the Res-icon was also switched.

Unlike many other fake apps, the sole aim of the developer was to create revenue through Ad views. You can see the amount of WhatsApp branded apps that have got past Google's curation below on screenshot.

Android users becareful with the way you download things out there, we all know Google playstore is the best secured store for downloading apps but things still happen or you can just get yourself an iPhone and be secured.

Lalasticlala, please pass this to them to save more people from this mess!

This is the major reason why I won’t use android. All apps are verified by apple before they can be allowed on AppStore.
iPhone all the way

It's a matter of choice.
Personally, I love the varieties that Android offers.
I know some prefer to be shackled instead.

Just like millions went for a fake government. Nigerians be careful before you take in another round of propaganda as 2019 approaches

there is nothing spectacular bro...trust me there isn't nothing in apple products..It's even worse for u if u reside in Africa as u will under utilize its supposed features. .

It's just a mere propaganda to form posh for Africans that is why shamelessly some even buy clones..


There are alot of Good phones out there..I'm sure alot of mobile phones experts will agree...I'm not a big fan of Apple products like i was few years ago even as I was one of their pioneers customers..I just think it was just a form of another bondage..Don't know if u get my point..
