WhatsApp has seen numerous problems over the past few years that cause crashes on both Android phones and iPhones. Another message like this one, which causes the well-known messaging service WhatsApp to collapse, is supposedly doing the rounds online right now.
Brazil has a high prevalence of the issue, claims tipper WABetaInfo. The tipper mentions a number of WhatsApp user reports from Brazilian users. Typically, these messages are vcards that contain unsupported characters. It is important to remember that this defect has existed for a long time. But WhatsApp hasn’t yet patched it.
Although there is no patch in the official version of WhatsApp, unofficial WhatsApp mods have reportedly incorporated Crashcode protection to stop such events from happening. However, as your privacy can be jeopardised, we do not advise using them.
To avoid being joined to groups with these crash warnings, it is advised that you adjust your group privacy settings to My Contacts. Open WhatsApp and navigate to Settings -> Account -> Privacy -> Groups -> My Contacts to accomplish this.
There are two options if you’ve gotten such a notification. If the device is linked to WhatsApp Web, you may simply enter the chat on your PC and erase the message. Once the message has been erased, WhatsApp should operate correctly.
You’re left with no choice except to reinstall WhatsApp if that doesn’t work. However, you are not need to uninstall and then reinstall. For the app to sign in again, you may just go to the settings and clear data. If you have a recent backup, don’t forget to restore the conversation history while you’re doing it.
