One such message forward on WhatsApp reads - "If you touch the black point then your whatsapp will hang", followed by the second line with a "black dot" and the words "t-touch-here".
Another message spotted on Reddit which is similar to the first messages reads - "This is very Interesting! laughing emoji ..."
Recently, a news surfaced online suggesting that a Telugu text bomb was crashing the iMessage app on iPhones. The message that is being forwarded contains some unknown special character that upon being tapped impedes the operations of WhatsApp. This is not a hoax as numerous WhatsApp users on Android are reporting that their app is crashing after they tap on the black dot.
WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging application in the world. The message although looks like a plain text, includes hidden symbols between the emoji and a quotation mark at the end of the sentence. And, it could be annoying to restart the phone and the app when you are amidst important work. The message will cause the app to hang for a bit, after which it will then function normally. The app is crashing because there is a space in between the text return and the black dot.
The tricky and awesome part is that how they have managed to hide all these characters and we only see the famous black circle and the message of do not touch here. While there is nothing malicious behind this bug but has seemingly been created to plague you. The black Circle blocks your phone when you press it and you have to restart your phone. If you click it, your WhatsApp will get unresponsive for some time. Also, avoid forwarding such messages to others.
