New Facebook chat v2.0 app - Another facebook scam


This is a fake application. However for those who wants to really use features like voice and video chat on facebook, there's another genuine application. Learn more about using Voice and Video Chat on Facebook.


An application named New facebook chat v2.0 has been urging users to activate the new facebook chat with new features like video chat, font colors, animations, group chat and faster speed. But it actually a scam as it sends to many notifications and users say it really doesn't work. After few steps it asks users to click on an ad to complete the activation. After you click on activation, following screen appears:

Fake facebook chat

It seems to be a scam due to following:
1) Not developed by facebook.
2) In final step, it asks users to click on an advertisement to complete the activation.
2) Users reporting that no such feature are available.
3) It sends unnecessary notifications.

It may be a phising scam trying to access andstore your profile information or trying to harm your computer. Its urging users to click on ads. So, just ignore this application. Report this application to facebook.

Just go to your facebook application settings and you find the list of apps. Search for New Facebook chat and click on X on right of it. Confirm it and it will be removed.

This application no longer remain on facebook. So, no need to remove this from applications. But Beware of other such apps. If you find such apps, report it to facebook and you can share with us on this post.
