There are two types of pranks: Pranks that make everyone laugh, and pranks that crash your iPhone when you innocently click on a link in search of a funny meme. Guess which one this is? You got it. A “joke” is making its way around the Internet using the link CrashSafari.com, which does pretty much exactly what it says. However, it can go as far as to crash your whole device as well.
Whoever created this prank was feeling pretty sneaky, because they’ve made it somewhat impossible to look out for. Not only have users been putting the link through URL shorteners so it shows up unrecognizable, they’ve also managed to get it to not just crash Safari, but other browsers like Chrome as well.
The only way to truly avoid the link is to be super wary of what you’re clicking on, which is good Internet practice anyways. Unless, of course, someone is Rickrolling you. That’s always hilarious.
