According to the Huffington Post, the website will crash an iPhone 6S and an iPhone 5S running iOS version 9.2.1 and a iPhone 6 running iOS 9.2. The website will also reportedly crash Safari when accessed through a desktop computer and slow down some android devices when accessed through Google's Chrome.

While the website doesn't appear to be dangerous and won't do any permanent damage to your phone, people are sending the website around via social media using a link shortener in order to trick users into visiting the website.

The prank isn't harmful, but it is annoying to have to restart your phone. So beware of any strange or enticing links, they may crash your phone.

Here's the iPhone crash scandal that went viral last year:
