How to Hang Someone's Phone Via WhatsApp Message

WhatsApp is one of the best and even most popular messenger app for smartphones. If you are using WhatsApp from a long time, you might have received several messages from your friends that hangs your phone or crashes the app automatically. So how a message can do this? You may call it a virus or scam but actually it's a WhatsApp bug.

Hang phone via WhatsApp message

If a message containing lots of characters or emojies (say more than 25k characters) is sent to someone, WhatsApp will start crashing as it can't handle such long messages. This will slow down your phone's performance and eventually your phone will also hang for a while.

Though WhatsApp has fixed this problem to some extent but still you can use it as a prank to hang your friend's phone. Here's a simple trick to create a contact message in WhatsApp that will hang your friend's phone.

How to hang someone's WhatsApp

As already mentioned, you can hang WhatsApp by sending a message which contains too many characters. You can apply this trick on contact also. All you have to do is, create a new phone contact and fill too many characters in its name field. Then just send that contact to the person whose phone you want to hang.

Let's first discuss about how to generate characters (or smileys) -

WhatsApp Bomber

There are a couple of apps available for Android that can help you to generate thousands of characters instantly. One of the app is named WhatsApp Bomber which you can find over the Internet by searching on Google. This app lets you choose the level to generate characters and then automatically copy everything to the clipboard.

You can also create a long text message manually in Notes app by copying and pasting same thing again and again (For example, you can copy-paste 100 smileys 10x times to create 1k+ smileys).


Once you have copied characters to the clipboard, next step is to create a new phone contact. Here's a step-by-step guide to hang someone's WhatsApp with this trick -
  1. First go to Phone Contacts and add a new number.
  2. In the first and last name field, paste the characters you have copied to the clipboard and save the contact. Additionally you can add contact picture.

  3. Now open WhatsApp and send contact to your friend's chat or group. That's it.

You can also send text to the victim's chat directly without creating a new phone contact. When the victim will open your chat, his phone will start hanging. Note that, your contact should have at least 1000 smileys in both first and second name field. Also, this trick may not work on iPhone.

How to prevent WhatsApp from crashing

When you will open the victim's chat or when someone will send the same message, your phone will also hang for a while. To prevent WhatsApp from crashing, simply open the chat and delete that message. So this is how you can hang someone's WhatsApp. Isn't that interesting and funny trick?
