WhatsApp Starts Marking Suspicious Links With The New Feature

WhatsApp has started rolling out the ‘Suspicious Link’ detection feature on Android Beta phones. This comes after WhatsApp’s move to counter fake news and the social media platform is leaving no stones unturned to clean out the mess.

The way this feature works is – When you receive a suspicious link, you will see WhatsApp displaying a warning that reads ‘This link contains unusual characters. It may be trying to appear as another site.’ From there you can either go ahead into clicking the link or head back.

The feature is currently available on the Android Beta version 2.18.221 and will be rolled out for iOS and Windows users in the coming update.
