Okay so I had gotten this text from a unknown number months ago. I never opened it bc at the time it was sent I could already see what the message was in my notification. So now I was trying to find someone’s number, who I never put into my contacts. So I ended up opening that message, they texted me once one day with a emoji, and then twice with gifs, another with a text saying happy new yr. Since then they haven’t texted me and now I’m kinda nervous If that was malware or a virus text, or if it was just number mix up?
Is it possible to get a phone infected with just opening it, with also it being a gif attached to it?
