This Priyanka has cropped up on the tech blogs, just about everywhere that I was reading, so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon.
Got Android? Read on.
Got something called "WhatsApp"? Read on.
WhatsApp is a chat client for SMS or other WhatsApp users. Yes, Yet Another Chat Client has a worm running through it. Pretty common these days.
It's an easy one to avoid, simply don't accept any messages from Priyanka, don't friend Priyanka... In short, ignore Priyanka and delete anything from it without opening it.
If you have Priyanka in your contacts, then it goes out and sends invites to all your friends on the WhatsApp platform in order to share in on the fun.
The instructions to get rid of them are pretty simple as well, and you can find them at this link.
I'm an admitted oddball. I don't do SMS Texting. At all. It's turned off at T-Mobile, so no matter what I'm safe.
Want to talk to me, call me. Want to send text? Email. Yeah I know, it's not trendy but I'm in front of a computer from 7AM until 11PM some days. I'll leave WhatsApp on the shelf for those who are more "smartphone addicted" than I am.
