Smart lesson

Some of my relatives recently added me in their group on WhatsApp, which I had not been using for many months. The reason was I was busy with my writing assignments and there were many messages which I could not reply. It was straining relations. 

However, I accepted the family group so as to stay connected. 

A few days ago, when I was sleeping I suddenly heard some sounds from my mobile. When I checked, I saw plenty of WhatsApp messages. I  wondered how I could get the messages without Internet connectivity.

It was then that I realised while adjusting the settings, I had wrongly activated an app and that led to Internet access. 

To my shock, it was deducting money from my main account. 

Lesson learnt: One has to be careful while using smartphones.
