WhatsApp Plus: what is it and what are the risks when downloading it
WhatsApp is one of the most used applications in the world and has more than 2,000 million users on the planet who can communicate from anywhere in real time.
Some time ago you have heard of WhatsApp Plus, an alternate application to the original and its latest version is V.10, but is it safe to have it?

This WhatsApp Plus allows you to chat, send photos, emojis, videos and documents just like the original, but you can also change the color of the chats and the platform. In addition, it has other functions that help to have a better user experience.
In the latest version it was added “enable chats” and “separate groups”, hide the display state, change colors and customize your application. You can also ‘disappear’ for some contacts and change your last connection to a different time and customize your read receipt (blue checks) depending on the contact.
Despite its new functions, the truth is that since it is not official, it can have many problems in the future. For example, the instant messaging platform WhatsApp reports that if you as a user have an app other than the original, your number may be banned and you will never be able to use the official application again.

Also, keep in mind that WhatsApp Plus does not have encrypted chats, which means that anyone could access your conversations or third parties without you knowing.
Likewise, the application accesses your contact list, so that number leaks could be generated or some problems could be derived from cyberattacks against this application that could compromise its security.
