MAC and iPhone users have been warned: do not click here.

A viral link being circulated through social media, included Twitter, is shutting down people’s iPhones and computers and forcing them to reboot.

9To5Mac issued a warning today about the website that is going viral as people are trying to trick unsuspecting folk into crashing their device.

If you click on a link to the website CrashSafari.com with an iPhone or Mac, a JavaScript code on the website will force your iPhone to reboot and crash your Mac.

While the name of the website does give fair warning, the problem is people are sharing it online as a shortened link that disguises the web address.

9To5Mac said the website does not damage the device but crashing a phone or computer can cause you to lose the tabs you have opened in a browser and to lose any unsaved work.

A search of Twitter reveals that some people are being upfront about sharing the link that will crash a device, while others are disguising the link with clickbait promises, such as the answers to every test and promises of pornography.

While the link clearly has been designed to attack Apple users, people have reported it has also affected other browsers on Windows machines.
