People with WhatsApp accounts who have not activated two-step verification have been hacked recently through a scam, and their WhatsApp are sending some links when online.
Please do not click on these purported “Netflix” and “Amazon” links, it’s a scam to get access to all useful information on your phone.
Once you click on the link, your WhatsApp will start sending the same link once you are online to your contacts and groups which will also make them vulnerable.
