*(सावधान)*Hi Friendsजिस किसी की भी व्हाट्सएप्प पे प्रोफाइल फ़ोटो खुद की हो जल्द से जल्द बदल दो. क्योंकि Whatsapp पे ISIS अपने आतंकी गतिविधियों के लिए और कुछ ऐसे hackers आये है जिनके पास आपका व्हाट्सएप्प नंबर है वो लोग उस प्रोफाइल फ़ोटो का गलत इस्तेमाल कर रहे है. Whatsapp के CEO ने सलाह दी है की अगले 20-25 दिन तक खुद की profile photo रखे. Whatsapp के engineers आपको safe के लिए आपके साथ co-operate करेंगे. इस मैसज को आगे forward करो.
Thank You.
