This modification of the application is new, although we already tell you that WhatsApp was working on it, but now it has been activated for all users worldwide.

What we have to do to be able to have this news is to update our version of the application to the latest beta, which has as number 2.18.221. You can also update from the Google Play Store if you are in the beta program.
From this moment, if they send you a suspicious link, a message will appear in the message itself, with a white text on a red background.
If we press a pop-up window will open that will indicate that this link is suspicious and that it is dangerous for us to visit it. However, if we still want to go to it we will simply have to click on Open link in that same window although We strongly encourage you not to do so.
