  • UI customization
  • Blocking access to individual chats
  • Several emojis

  • Snaptube
  • Vidmate

n the latest version of YoWhatsApp, version, the threat actors were able to obtain the keys to the WhatsApp accounts of their victims and take full control.

It is claimed that YoWhatsApp will allow users to send files up to 700 MB using their service. While there is a limit of 100 MB per file that can be sent from the official app to your contacts, and this makes the YoWhatsApp more appealing.

In a modified version of WhatsApp, the app sends the user’s access keys to a server located remotely on the developer’s server.
