Concerns over the private encrypted network by which millions of people now communicate has long been a staple of discussion in both the corporate and political spheres. Whilst most people use networks such as WhatsApp to simply chat with friends and discuss Game of Thrones in groups, the more sinister potential for harm has been ever-present.
Recently, one example of such abuse was made acutely clear when a rumour began spreading via group chats on the platform in a West London community that read: “Guys if anyone has Metro Bank account with money or locker. You need to empty as soon as possible. The bank is facing lot of financial difficulties and may be shut down or going bankrupt.”
