One of the versions this app has is to use the popular “Red Mode,” created by Acton and Koum, “for those who wanted to create a messaging app that was more secure and private than existing options,” MVSnoticias said.

WhatsApp plus red is not an official app and is not available in traditional app stores like Google Play Store or Apple App Store. Interested users must search for and download the app's APK file from third-party sources, which raises some security concerns.

How to activate “Red Mode” in WhatsApp?

For users who want to take advantage of the option to change their WhatsApp color from green to red, they should follow these steps:

Delete the WhatsApp application: Before doing this step, it is recommended to make a backup copy so that you do not lose your data.

Then download WhatsApp Plus Red.

Accept permissions to access your contacts and chat.

Then add your number and put your name.

Finally, WhatsApp Plus will appear completely red.

If the user wants to go back to the green version, all they have to do is go to their app configuration in Settings.
