People are assholes. And because people are assholes, we thought we should probably inform you that there’s a website link going around that will crash your iPhone.
So, if you see a link for crashsafari.com DON’T click it!
For reference, here’s what happens when you actually click the link…
When you visit the website, it’ll load for a moment and then crash Safari if you’re running on an iPhone 6S or iPhone 5S running iOS version 9.2.1 or a regular iPhone 6 running iOS 9.2.
Depending on your settings, the browser might crash and you might lose some tabs, or you’ll have to restart your device entirely. It’s not thought to do any damage, but it’s still probably best to avoid it if you can.
And a lot of people seem to be falling for it. As of earlier this afternoon, a single link had crashed over 93,000 phones.
Wow. One “Crash Safari” short-link has been clicked on more than one hundred thousand times… pic.twitter.com/JqotjPiN1j

The site will also crash desktop versions of Safari, if you’re using that. So beware.
