Re: Don't click on any link or website shared on groups
In the old days, the easiest way to send viruses was by email. To this day, I get many viruses via email. But the technology has advanced and now there is the "Spam Box" of the email.
But with the increase in the number of Smartphone Applications, hackers have found another way to steal our data by installing viruses on our phones. Everyone has a smartphone nowadays, but there are not many people who dominate the technology and therefore do not know how to differentiate a suspicious link from a really reliable site.

Totally agree rquerido,

Hackers need to be smarter everyday, but nowadays is more easier the 1998-2000 to catch some virus in our devices.

The best tip is: If you look something weird or suspicious, please, DONT OPEN! ha

Re: Don't click on any link or website shared on groups
I don't agree if you, bro. If you pay attention and be a little smart, you won't open suspicious site or with strangers extensions. 

Nowadays its easy to create "fake scan site" like "Netflix 6 free months accounts". You ONLY just need to check the urls and don't put your information on that. 

Doing that, you won't have problems! <a href="https://www.comprecftv.com.br"> :) </a>

Hey Andre!

Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger now are infected by virus and people clicking on suspicious links. This is much dangerous!

And I agree with you when you said we dont think twice to click on a link sent by our friends. But like those old emails, we need to think about or we going to enter on website that we dont know.

Don't click on any link or website shared on groups
Most of my friends who had their mobile phones infected by viruses clicked on suspicious links sent by one of their contacts. Obviously, if the link comes from a trusted person, you won't think twice before you click on it, but this is very dangerous.

Always double check if that person really had the intention to send that message.
