The WhatsApp jokes are famous now, and they have been around for a long time. Recently, a new joke began to viralize, which has the ability to hang our smartphone, if we click on the mysterious black circle accompanied by a mysterious message.

During the last hours, the panic is spreading in WhatsApp since many think that it is distributing a virus that blocks the smartphones. As you can see in the image, the text ‘don’t touch here’ hides thousands of characters, if we spend our chat conversation in .txt format and we take a look.

As we all know that the well-known instant messaging application, of course, I am talking about WhatsApp does not receive well appreciation with messages that contain or hides thousands of characters, simply because of the application crashes, as when we simply communicate with these types of messages most of the times the app itself or even sometimes the smartphone get crashed.

Actually, the main trick that the spammers managed to do in this specific message is they managed to hide thousands of unknown characters in a single message, and in the message, we received in WhatsApp we only see the famous black circle and the warning message which states that ‘don’t touch here’.

However, once you touch that black circle which states ‘don’t touch here’ it simply crashes the WhatsApp, but, in reality, that black circle doesn’t crash WhatsApp, actually it gets crashed by the hidden characters, not by the circle.

Now, the best way to avoid this scam is very simple, first, do not click on the message and second, simply delete the message to avoid WhatsApp and smartphone crashes. Moreover, if we talk about viruses, then I hope now it is clear that there is no virus circulating on WhatsApp, as now we all know that it is a simple spammy message with a base that we already know. As always, the internet does not stop surprising us with all kinds of trolls, and one of these days has a name, don’t touch here.
