If you try to open a chat with an incorrect WhatsApp phone number, the instant messaging app will notify you as 'phone number shared via url is invalid'. On clicking the black dot crashes the WhatsApp app. The gist of it is that the invisible part of the message is comprised of special characters which Unicode uses to specify whether a given text should be laid out right-to-left or left-to-right. When a user taps on message, the hidden symbols expand, that causes the app or the phone to go down.
How Does The WhatsApp Black Dot Message Work? Such threatening messages are not limited to the Android platform though, iMessage on iOS has also encountered texts that sent the app crashing.
