Advanced System Care – Help Keep Scammers Away by Cleaning and Secureing Your PC Effectively and Keeping it that Way


SINGAPORE: The Singapore Police Force (SPF) has once again reminded the public to be vigilant against fraud cases involving WhatsApp’s web version and has gone one step further by advising the public to avoid using WhatsApp Web amid rising scams.

In its latest statement, SPF stressed the importance of accessing WhatsApp’s web version only through the official channels, specifically the official website (https://web.whatsapp.com) or the official desktop application.

In addition to advising against the use of the web version, the police have provided a set of proactive steps to enhance security for personal WhatsApp accounts. Users are strongly encouraged to enable the “two-factor verification” function, a feature designed to add an extra layer of protection to their accounts.

The police also recommend regular checks on devices linked to WhatsApp and prompt deletion of bound devices that are no longer in use. This proactive approach is intended to prevent unauthorized access and mitigate the risk of criminals exploiting dormant connections to carry out scams.

This marks the second time law enforcement has issued a public reminder about the risks associated with WhatsApp’s web version in the past two months. Recent cases have revealed that victims inadvertently fell prey to fake login pages, allowing scammers to gain remote access and exploit the victims’ WhatsApp accounts for fraudulent activities targeting their family or friends.
