Usually when you install WhatsApp in your mobile phone, WhatsApp would send a verification code to verify if you are the real owner of the mobile phone number that you have entered and it is done automatically by its company. But in recent times there are several cases where, the scammers are sending you a WhatsApp code and a link.
When you tend to click the link then you are confirming that it is you on behalf of the criminal/scammer. By this method, the user can lose control of their WhatsApp messages and the scammer can read and send messages by using your mobile number. Please note that If you have not requested for a WhatsApp code, then you should not click on any links on WhatsApp tath demands for a cofirmation.
