Hoax Message on WhatsApp

A hoax message claiming that PM Narendra Modi is offering a free Rs 500 recharge to all Indians is doing rounds on WhatsApp. A link in the message redirects users to a webpage asking them to share their personal details like contact number, telecom operator and their state. While no balance is received by the user, details get shared with spammers. It is highly advised, that if any user receives such a message, they should immediately delete it so that even by mistake they don’t end up tapping on this like, and forwarding it their contacts. Such malicious links not only can affect your device, but may also seep into your phone and steal data.
