An ad opened WhatsApp.

Hello, this may be the wrong subreddit for this question but i didnt really know where else to ask.

So I’ve tried to watch a stream of a sports event, and when i clicked on play an ad popped up and it redirected to whatsapp message to a random number.

Should i be worried about something or not?



No need to be worried. You haven’t been hacked nor would they have your details unless you actually sent the person a message.

Its a feature most apps have. Like when you click a button that says share on Facebook and it automatically opens Facebook and has the message ready.


Which phone/os are you on?
