WhatsApp bug: This message could crash your phone
07 May, 2018, 11:33
TechJuice received such a message as well and as you can see in the image below the message reads, "If you touch the black point then your WhatsApp will hang". It's not as dire as needing to uninstall reinstall but it is a hassle if you'll have to restart both the app and your phone, especially if you need to send important messages to contacts.
As you can see in the screenshots leaked, WhatsApp is now working on the Greeting Message feature, which sends a greeting message to a user either on their first message or after 14 days of inactivity.
These messages with the ability to crash your smartphone and the app are said to have hidden special characters, which can change the text behavior. So, in the English text we use LRM (left-to-right) directional formatting character, but in the case of this WhatsApp message RLM is used. These messages always annoy people on emails and text messages most of the time.
It is not new for WhatsApp to be a source for spreading spam messages.
Additionally, this is not the first time that such a spam message has been floating in the platform.
The most annoying part is that you don't even have to click on anything. The stated sentence is followed by the second line with a "black dot" and the words "t-touch-here" are written next to the dot. If anything, the message was created to simply irritate users with a brief inability (in some extreme cases, it crashes the app) to scroll up or down after tapping on the dot. The app is freezing because of the black space placed in between the text and the black dot.
Avoiding such messages is recommended. If you receive the message, then you have to restart your smartphone.
