After WhatsApp implemented the function of deleting messages in the instant messaging application, allowing users to delete any content they had sent in error, applications that allow retrieving such information have become popular on the network.
Installing applications that promise to do something that the original application does not allow is a big risk
Users who want to know what their friends have deleted have made them popular and even some of them already have more than 10 million downloads in app stores. However, very few really know the risks of allowing other applications to access their messaging service, and this can have important consequences.
On the network «nothing is free». Installing apps that promise to do something that the original application does not pose a risk and users end up paying at the cost of their security.
For example, one of the most used applications is WAMR, which can be downloaded for free in the PlayStore. As its description indicates, it allows you to retrieve text messages and also any attachment in a message, such as images, videos, voice memos, audios, GIF files…. among other things.
Actually, WAMR and the rest of the applications that act in this way are not cheating the user. The problem is that he does not know what he is accepting or consciously using an application that, for offering something that the original app does not provide, is charging him a "cost", even if it is not economical because the installation of the app is free .
