WhatsApp is crashing due to this link, but there is a workaround if you’re affected

WhatsApp is one of the best messaging apps available for Android and is known for giving users the ability to communicate while benefiting from enhanced privacy and security features. Unfortunately, while this app usually provides a relatively smooth experience, some users seem to be experiencing a unique issue where the app will crash after sending a certain link. At the moment, the Android version of WhatsApp appears to be affected, with both the consumer and business version of the app experiencing issues. Fortunately, there is a way to fix it, and the workaround is not that complicated.

The problem was first discovered by Brute Bee on Twitterwith Android Authority Capture the news, and share that the app will crash if the link “” is sent to the user. Now, links normally shouldn’t be a problem for the app, but it seems the previously listed links, which usually send the user to the WhatsApp settings menu, are now causing the app to crash instead.

Fortunately, there is a solution to the problem, albeit a temporary one. If users are experiencing this problem, one way to get around the problem is to delete the chat completely, and get rid of the problematic link. But, if that is not an option, you can also access WhatsApp Web through a browser, go to the affected chat and delete the problem link instead. This link does not cause a crash when the message is accessed using a browser and, once deleted, will allow the chat to function normally when viewed through the app on Android.

Of course, this is only a temporary fix and will require Meta to look into the issue and fix it with an update. Hopefully, if you are a WhatsApp user, you will not be affected by this problem. But if you have, now you have a solution that you can use to get things back to normal. Again, this is just a temporary solution, and if that link is sent to a chat again, you will again encounter the same problem and will need to follow the same steps to fix it.
