WhatsApp about to start charging you from TODAY? Message sparks huge payment fear

WHATSAPP fans will soon be forced to pay to use the service, a message has claimed. However, before clicking on the subscription link users should be warned it's a scam.



WhatsApp pay scam text
WhatsApp users are being targeted with a new message that claims they'll soon be forced to pay 99p to continue to use the popular service.
The fake text, which has been circulating this week, states, “Your subscription has expired. To verify your account and purchase a lifetime subscription for just 0.99 GBP simply tap on this link.”
The message is a hoax with WhatsApp users warned not to click on the link or pay the 99p charge.
WhatsApp did charge some users to access the service but these subscription fees were scrapped back in 2016.
In a blog post WhatsApp confirmed the service will remain free saying: "We're happy to announce that WhatsApp will no longer charge subscription fees.
"For many years, we've asked some people to pay a fee for using WhatsApp after their first year.
"As we've grown, we've found that this approach hasn't worked well.
"WhatsApp will no longer charge you for our service."


The Facebook-owned company originally warned owners of some iPhones, Android, BlackBerry and Nokia devices that WhatsApp would stop working in December 2016.
But they then had a change of heart with a blog post confirming that WhatsApp was "extending support for BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40 and Nokia Symbian S60 until June 2017."
Sadly for owners of those devices the time has come to wave goodbye to WhatsApp as, from June 30th, it will no longer work.


Whatsapp reported as DOWN across Europe and UK



WhatsApp understands the news won't go down well for many users saying: "While these mobile devices have been an important part of our story, they don't offer the kind of capabilities we need to expand our app's features in the future.
"This was a tough decision for us to make, but the right one in order to give people better ways to keep in touch with friends, family, and loved ones using WhatsApp."If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone before the end of June 2017 to continue using WhatsApp."
