    In this post Today I am going to tell you how to remove the Priyanka Virus that is spreading through WhatsApp nowadays!

    WhatsApp is a multi platform messaging app that is used my millions of people around the world.

    WhatsApp lets you connect with your friends or other people no matter which platform they are using. Be it Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Blackberry OS or Symbian you can connect with your friends using this single app.

    Just in this week a virus named “Priyanka” started infecting WhatsApp users. This virus started spreading itself using a contact file, users once save/add this  to their contacts may have following consequences :
    1. It would change names of all the group to “Priyanka”.
    2. Further on more infection it could replace all your contact names with “Priyanka”.
    But no need to worry about it, because all this stuff is limited to the application that means it would not affect your phone.  So next time when you receive such contacts which you don’t expect from your colleagues just discard them.
