The Bitdefender alerts WhatsApp scam messages. But how does one find and delete it in WhatsApp?

The Bitdefender message for the alert shows some gobblydook which a lay user can not understand.

Simplest would be if Bitdefender could permit user to click on the message which would then invoke WhatsApp (or the relevant other App) and open up the offending message so that the user can delete it.

  • Hello @Himrastogi,

    Chat Protection continuously monitors chat sessions alerting you of suspicious links that might attempt to steal financial data, credentials and other sensitive information.

    When malicious links are detected during chat sessions, the user receives a warning along with information about associated risks and a suggested course of action. If warnings are ignored, built-in web protection technologies prevents the user from navigating to the malicious webpage.

    The detection will display information about the app, app category and link category as well, so you know exactly where the suspicious messsage is:

    Let me know if this is what you are looking for and if the information is helpful.

    Regards
