Bad joke with “Siri” has become viral


Some internet users have spread a “potentially harmful” viral joke, it is about urging people to tell Siri voice assistant the number “108” and wait to see what happens.

However, this is a bad idea: this combination of numbers will put you in contact with emergency services in a matter of seconds, reports Tech.Mic portal. So, depending on the country you are in, 108 is equivalent to calling 911 in the USA. Or to 112 in the European Union.

The portal points out that this is a serious joke because it can waste time and money, and also it uses resources that can be vital to other people that require help in real emergency situations.
