Downloading apps without checking their authenticityRecently a WhatsApp message is doing the rounds, alerting people not to download an app which supposedly helps to check your oxygen level which is used to indicate whether or not there is COVID infection. People are very gullible and out of sheer fear of getting infected, believe anything that they are told. The old myth about holding one's breath for 10 seconds to test whether or not one has been infected was circulating some months back and now again something similar is doing the rounds.
You should not only be a responsible individual in stopping the spread of myths and rumours, but also a responsible individual in scolding the sender and telling him/her to stop sending such messages.
The reason why I am repeating this topic is to emphasize that not only should you not believe everything you receive, but I suggest that (a) you check for yourself online the authenticity of it (you can type the relevant words and add the word hoax or myth or fraud for example); (b) do not forward such messages; (c) send back the received message to the sender of the message, asking if it is verified; and (d) if you have verified it yourself (you should!) send the link to the sender.
Also, the apps are not only those relating to health issues but also others as well. Do not download an alleged education app without due care as the name may be similar to some populer brand and is actually something else altogehter.
