WhatsApp will show users a preview of the links added to the statuses. Thus, it will be possible to understand whether they are malicious or not without clicking on the links.
WhatsApp, the world’s most popular instant messaging application, is also the number one haunt of especially malicious people. Scammers can get hold of users’ information with fake links they share from time to time.
According to WABetaInfo, a new feature is being added to the application that will annoy scammers.
Now, when users share a link in their status, a preview of the link will be displayed in the form of a box. Thus, the page that the link redirects to will be visible as a preview without clicking anywhere.
Although WhatsApp has not made any statements about the features it is working on, the new feature is expected to be added to the application shortly.
