Bug might allow blocked contacts to contact you.
Despite the popularity of messaging apps you can’t help but encounter persons you’d never want to talk to again. But thankfully you have options to block these people as a way for you to secure yourself and your privacy.
But a recent discovery of a bug on one of the most popular messaging apps has many users fuming about it. WhatsApp was just reported to include a bug in its latest update that enables previously blocked users to contact you. Additionally, these blocked contacts will be able to view your status and even read your profile information.
There’s a temporary fix though – you simply unblock the number and simply block it again.
WhatsApp hasn’t responded to the issue nor acknowledged the fix, so we don’t know when that bug will be eliminated.
It was reported that the bug exists on the iOS and Android versions of WhatsApp.
