    Another obvious app but it saved me so many times in foreign countries. I remember when I was returning from Frankfurt. Without WhatsApp I wouldn’t be able to contact the driver and he’d likely leave without me.

    When traveling to Spain with 2 other travel buddies, sometimes you can’t help but separate and go your own way. Maybe you have different itineraries and you have to complete them on different dates. WhatsApp is a highly recommended app to stay in touch with friends.

    With family and friends all over the world, it can be tough keeping in touch with everyone. WhatsApp can help keep you and everyone in your family connected in a group chat or private chat. You can share pictures and videos and update loved ones regularly. Even if it is 1 or 2 times a week you can easily message, video chat, and call your family.

    When your husband or wife is overseas, 2 days of phone tag is not something you want to deal with. Leave video messages, texts, and share phone calls via Wifi to any location in the country. Communicate reliably with your loved ones.

    When you're looking for colleges to apply to, asking your friends in college will be the best way to get the inside information. Chat with anyone, anywhere, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. All you need is WiFi to communicate with anyone in the world.

  • Couldn’t ask for a better app to communicate with loved ones Mar 22, 2022

    By briana_.ceu
    I absolutely adore this app. It keeps me connected with my friends and family at all times. The chat features are amazing. One of the features I love about WhatsApp is the saving a chat message which has the star icon. I use it all the time to save important and special sweet messages from my friends and family. WhatsApp even lets me look at all the saved messages in that conversation under the contact which I really appreciate. WhatsApp settings are very easy to get around with and with no problems. Another feature I love is the Preview feature. When I’m going to a public place where I could possibly forget my phone somewhere and I don’t want my messages to be seen or in another case I want privacy I use that feature. I also like the customizable sound notifications for each contact. I absolutely am grateful for this app!

    This is a great text messaging, phone, and video calling replacement app. It supports group chat and full end to end encryption on all features. International texts and calls are all free, provided you have data. Be sure to go into settings and disable the permission that allows random strangers to add you to groups without your consent.

    The app is mostly great and problem-free, but there ARE two ongoing issues: 1. Notifications usually work well, but then a few will suddenly pop up on "silent" for no reason, then inexplicably resume functioning correctly. (Clearing the cache & data, and uninstalling/reinstalling the app does not fix this problem.) 2. When a spam message comes in, there's NO way to block/report the sender WITHOUT opening their message. (This is especially distressing for anyone with Read Receipts enabled.)
  • Anytime Anywhere App - WhatsApp changed the way we communicate. May 4, 2022

    By Austingiltus
    WhatsApp will go in history as an App which change the way across the globe how we communicate. Just downloaded as a chat app to connect local friends planning weekend meetup. Now No international calling cards, all my family and friends, I call them via audio and video calls via WhatsApp. For Work, Professional Network, Professional Network, for connecting with people of same geographical area, same interest I manage more than 1500 different WhatsApp groups. WhatsApp you are amazing. I am still waiting for the feature when Admin can delete messages posted by spammers in groups and remove and delete a spammer from all groups with single click. Wrote to WhatsApp Team few times and still waiting for that Admin Privilege. Thanks WhatsApp, you have become “Anytime Anywhere App” for billions including me.

    This app is a great way to stay in contact with familys and friends that are overseas. However as of lately I am unable to send or share video medias. As an android user I'm not sure what to do. I have tried everything from what I have seen on YouTube but nothing works. As this point its becoming frustrating and annoying to keep getting this error message. Please look into it.
  • WhatsApp- A Great End to End Encryption Platform Apr 28, 2020

    By @njiban
    I am particularly fascinated with WhatsApp because of its versatility and agility as far as social media platforms are concerned. It takes customer privacy and security into great context and go out of their way to protect that customer information from 3rd parties and hackers. I have never heard of a hack or security breach into WhatsApp security systems. Overall the App has been great and has eased the way the world has connected via talking and sharing digital and graphical data. The only downside to WhatsApp is that when you lose your device or are out of storage and uninstall the app, you typically lose all your previous chats and data. I would have been great if WhatsApp had an option for optional storage space for sale, for folk to backup their communication and social media data. Thank you

    I love the app and it serves an important purpose for me. The only issue I have is in the last year I've had the app hacked. I've done 2 step verification etc. They were posing as a contact and I chatted a while before I realized it wasn't my friend. I've recovered my account and want to block and report the numbers that were in my app. The only instructions refer to your contact and how to block them but they weren't contacts. I don't recognize the numbers at all. Blocking doesn't seem enough
  • Camera takes fuzzy photos every time Sep 22, 2017

    By kylehotchkiss
    WhatsApp in general is fine. But every photo I take in the app is fuzzy; and more zoomed in than my normal photos app. It’s like they are putting camera in video mode and taking a screenshot. I guess this is part of their cross platform library but still, I wish it would let the camera app use more native and high quality functionality. Additionally, it’s wayyy too easy to send things to the wrong person. You can’t remove people from “recently contacted” or “frequently contacted” prompts around iOS for sharing. I’m terrified I will send my girlfriends brother something immodest because his name shows above hers even though our chat volumes are way different. WhatsApp is a globally loved tool but has some pretty strange UX issues given its financial backer and experienced staff. I will continue to use it as most of the world doesn’t have iMessage; but if they did; I don’t think I’d miss the WhatsApp app that much.

    By Nin★DogeAppReviews
    I really love this app. It's incredible how you can talk with anyone around the world without paying actual money. There’s nothing wrong happening with my version, the camera works well and shoots good photos. There are some things that would make this app the best messaging app. The first one is that when you mute a group chat there should be an option that allows you to mute it forever, same goes with the real-time location. When you create a group, others shouldn’t have the option to kick you from the group, and there should be an option to make someone not be an admin without having to kick the person and adding them again. Also, I really want the GIFs to have their own spot so you don’t need to go to Photos and Videos and then click GIFs. Also, make a DRAWING option. Well, that’s all. Thanks for this amazing app.

    WhatsApp has the best voice/video calling connection I've found. Love the audio recording though I wish it could pause. Love the video messaging as well. It would easily be 5 stars if I could *edit written messages*. Stickers would be great. Oh, and the search function is really wonky. I've used it as my primary international communication app for years, but now use Telegram for day to day communications, and WhatsApp mostly for video calls now. It's still got the most reliable connection.
  • App got worse after no choice then having to update Apr 11, 2021

    What happened to what’s app after the update. It got worse. What about being able to delete what you sent on both sides nit just from my chat, it used to not any more! You said there were improvements? Not at all! Improvements doesn’t mean to take away what worked well for many. improvements is enhancing adding not removing what works. What a disappointment this app fell short! Many feel the same! Security? That probably won’t be secure either anymore! Let’s see what will happen going forward with all the breaches and the unsecured and less encryption . I can go on and on. If you say you will improve, then do as you promise!

  • Never seen a more garbage communication app May 22, 2022

    By officialkei
    Just to clarify I have been using WhatsApp for several years, if I had to guess it would be over 4 years, I have plenty of friends that use it and swear by it but I cannot fathom how frustrating it is to use sometimes. I came on here to express one thing and one thing only. Many of my colleagues use this app to video chat and to send text. I have added many contacts using WhatsApp however when I try to send a message or call these new contacts i am left with only inviting them to use the app, rendering the app completely useless at times. Allow me to specify my problem. Say for example I added a new phone number in my contacts list. I close the app to then open WhatsApp, I try to search for the new contact. I find the name, but when I try to send a message the only choice I have is to invite. This is mostly frustrating when I first add someone but I have contacts from a year ago that still need an invitation when they so clearly use the app on a daily basis. As long as this problem persists I don’t see myself using the app long term, if it wasn’t for this issue I would be ecstatic about the development. For now I’m disappointed and at a loss of words for how I would feel going forward.

    There are 0 notifications unless you open the app. I've done ALL the troubleshooting. All the settings are as they should be, software is up to date. It was working until 3-4 days ago then notifications just stopped. No changes were made on my end. I had to uninstall because it started being glitchy, then reinstall and it's even worse now.
  • From Bad to Worse Feb 1, 2021

    By Silks777
    What was once a wonderful secure platform is fast becoming a laughingstock ever since it was touched by Facebook. So thoroughly disappointed. Relatives abroad had told me that Facebook is phasing out WhatsApp but demands that we give them all our contact details; I’m not for that. Apparently, In the UK, WhatsApp was given customers until the first week of February before they close an account if the customer refused to except terms to the detriment of customer privacy. Now there is a delay to this change? It’s still going to happen so why the delay? Could it be that this delay is to collect our information anyway without a permission, anyway? I have now started looking for a replacement to WhatsApp. I am sorry to be parting company with you but it isn’t the secure independent platform it once was and the quality has progressively deteriorated. To be honest, if I could opt for zero stars that would be the level at this point. I’ve been trying to speak to others over the platform but I’ve spent more time trying to reconnect or redial and it’s just not worth it. Another competitor bows out.

    They just ruined whatsapp and desguised it as an upgrade. Previously you could send yourself a message and view it on your phone and the WhatsApp Web interface. They "UPGRADED" WhatsApp Web and now you cannot do that (you don't have to keep your phone connected). The two interfaces no longer sync with each other! The change also makes it less secure! Update: they fixed it for a couple days, but it's still broken again now for the past week!

    In General, seems ok. However the computer version leaves a lot to be desired. There's no way to log in without having the phone app open too and scanning some box. Not everyone knows how to do that, me included. You should be able to just log into your account with your email and phone number once and be able to stay logged in. I don't like it at all, which is why I took stars away from it.

    The app used to be user-friendly. Unfortunately, for some reason; you are not allowed to send videos that are more than 11 minutes (recorded videos safe on your celular gallery). If the video is more than 11 minutes, it will not allow you to share it. The app is good for sharing photos, gif and short videos.

    With The recent update my phone doesn't load pictures, I checked the settings nothing changed. After a week of missing out on important images in my volunteer group, just in case I cleared my entire phone image (eventhough i had 2GB of free space) I then un-installed and re-installed the app to see if that fixed the problem. That didn't fix anything!! I've sent whatsapp msgs to Whatsapp help chat; you'll never get a response from a live person it clearly is a bot scanning your msgs 😡😡😡😡😡
  • They Now Banned Phone Numbers Everyday May 20, 2022

    By Kendo Swavey1
    Before, they don’t banned your phone number until maybe so much people report your phone numbers maybe when you are broadcasting fake things or maybe scammers that are sending spam messages or fake messages to scam people, but right now, since this new person took over WhatsApp, they will just seat down, and you will be logged out of WhatsApp, you will see a display messages telling you you have been logged out because someone has logged into your device in another place. They will now display (Verify, or Cancel ). When you verify, you see a message telling you , you your phone number has been banned from using WhatsApp. This is so bad , it’s not nice at all. You can’t just seat down and begging to banned people’s phone numbers for no reason. Same thing they do to you ok facebook, your facebook will not do anything bad , you will see that , your facebook account has been suspended. Not nice at all. It’s annoying. Please , Mark Zuckerberg, stop this.

  • Just a minor issue that’s really problematic Jun 7, 2019

    By Jreome J.
    Sometimes my messages can’t go through on time and it’s takes forever for them to receive it. When I text my friends who own Samsung devices, the message won’t go through even though they’re still online. It usually takes about 3 to 2 minutes for the other person to read my message(s). What really bugs me is that once it shows *last seen today at (time)* the message that I’ve sent is delivered, and it’s would show the double check mark. So the person who I sent a message to would only get it if they exit out the app. Plus, no matter how much messages you send to that person, they will never receive it until they exit out of WhatsApp. Please fix this issue🙏🏼. It makes it really hard to communicate, even when it’s an emergency.

    Whatsapp is awesome, you can mute whichever number you so choose for a certain amount of time (hours to days). To changing the wallpaper in chat rooms and light mode theme. Though, i would love it if they added the option to change the text bubble! I see that it's an option for other phones (ive looked up how to change bubble text color but the option simply isnt there. Very minor detail but would like for it to be added) Asside from that! Whatsapp is great 10/10.
  • My WhatsApp issues. Feb 22, 2022

    By TOP-G😎
    I’ve got a lot of problems with my WhatsApp app. First of all why every time i add stories then when I went back and deleted em other people still can see em? Today’s been 3 years since I started using WhatsApp but it still the same why i have to update my WhatsApp app every once in a while? And the main thing I noticed is even when I blocked someone i can read their stories and the can read mine as well sometimes i got very upset and one thing i also noticed is when I’m talking to someone on WhatsApp my background always looks black or blank and it won’t let me do nothing. Please guys do something with this app that will makes everyone happy. I use WhatsApp more than any other apps out here please fix these issues for me. Thank you 🙏🏾

WhatsApp is a great way to message and talk to your friends and and family virtually! It has satisfied me 100%! I extremely suggest it.

WhatsApp is amazing! My friends and I enjoy it very much!! It keeps me in touch with everyone! 😊! I 100% recommend anyone to use WhatsApp, it’s completely safe and free!! 🤩🤩 Sincerely, Kira Robinson
  • Privacy concern Jul 2, 2020

    By NeilBL2021
    WhatsApp is one of the best messengers, the fastest and most efficient, but I have a problem. I can not stop showing a call made through the application in the search history (spotligth) of the iphone. it doesn't matter from where you delete the call, not even deleting the contact at all from the iPhone, It always appears the last time you called that contact in the spotlight search if you call it with WhatsApp. This phenomenon does not happen with the native application of iPhone calls, deleting them from the history deletes them from everywhere and there is no trace of it in the spotlight search. This little detail does not happen with WhatsApp. I have had personal problems because of it, I hope you know what Iam talking about and solve this. Regards.

  • Bluetooth/Airpod mic update suggestion Mar 3, 2022

    By jprc1029384756
    I would like to humbly suggest an update in the name of users who use Bluetooth AirPods. The microphones on these devices are terrible for recording voice memos. People never understand what I say. It would be good if it were like Instagram. On Instagram, when you record a voice message it utilizes the iPhone mic instead of the AirPod mic even when using the AirPods. When I am having a conversation with someone via voice memos on WhatsApp, I have to turn off Bluetooth, then record my voice memo. After I’m done recording I have to turn Bluetooth back on. It goes on and off indefinitely until I am done with my conversation. So with that it would be awesome if we had the option to turn off the Bluetooth/AirPod mic only in a setting or just update it to be like Instagram where it records on the iPhones mic and only plays back on the AirPods. Thank you so much!!

    Its been a long time since I've last reviewed. This app is great, though I would really like if we can customize our profile, like, we can add headers to our profile to customize it. I think that would be sooo cool! I also do really want more ways to customize our custom status. Such as, add more fonts and colors. One problem is that whenever I post a video to my status it always have to be low quality. ☹️
  • Too easy to call people by accident May 6, 2018

    By Adriana04
    The app is really great and connects me with my contacts all over the world. It makes it easy to stay in touch. You can text and even call for free. Doesn’t get any better than that! The only thing I would change is how easy it is to call people by accident. It happens all the time. I wish they would hide that button behind the profile page. This is mostly a texting app, do we really need that button on the first page?Even on an iPhone you have to first click the i button from the message page to call someone. It’s smart. Another issue is that the app distorts the quality of pics and videos after they are sent. I often receive videos with delayed sound and fuzzy images. I have to ask my contacts to send me those through other apps so I can actually get the proper sound. Please fix and it will be the most perfect app!

    Very convenient to communicate through text and call. Great futures, like group conversation, deleating posts from group chats and easy to send multiple pictures. Extremely user friendly. Why can't we use Bluetooth for video calls...? We need privacy for these conversations. Please do something about it.

    The app is mostly great and problem-free, but there ARE two ongoing issues: 1. Notifications usually work well, but then a few will suddenly pop up on "silent" for no reason, then inexplicably resume functioning correctly. (Clearing the cache & data, and uninstalling/reinstalling the app does not fix this problem.) 2. When a spam message comes in, there's NO way to block/report the sender WITHOUT opening their message. (This is especially distressing for anyone with Read Receipts enabled.)

    This app is a great way to stay in contact with familys and friends that are overseas. However as of lately I am unable to send or share video medias. As an android user I'm not sure what to do. I have tried everything from what I have seen on YouTube but nothing works. As this point its becoming frustrating and annoying to keep getting this error message. Please look into it.

    ! GREAT BUT NEED ONE FEATURE NEEDED ! We're not able to fully use this app for our company because it does not have the ability to schedule messages to go out at a later date. There are other apps that we can install on top of this one to schedule messages but they are very difficult to use. Our messaging apps through Samsung Galaxy we can schedule messages very easily to go out at whatever date in the future we would like them to. This is extremely useful in our company. Thanks what's app!
  • Plenty of room for improvement Oct 14, 2017

    By Doug tge CEO
    As an avid user of social internet media , I found WhatsApp is lacking in many convenient features offered in other apps. I use Facebook when I want to express some thoughts, events etc. But FB Messenger is not efficient in quick text, so I still resort to 20 years old practice in text msg like in Nokia phones. WhatsApp is subservient to the features offered by WeChat. Understood that WeChat is by Tencent in China, nevertheless the features are amazing. The Moment posting functions are like Facebook post. The conversation wether individual or in chat groups are more user friendly than WhatsApp. It allows recalling a wrong message sent in mistake. Attaching files and emojis are awesome. My only complain is that once viewed in one device the message cannot be reviewed in an other, which FB allows all history conversation once logged in. I lived in America over 47 years. I highly recommend friends to use WeChat for daily contacts over other apps.
  • Not opening a chat Aug 19, 2020

    By Kim Namjoon_Kim Hyemi
    So me and my friend were talking and I put too much emojis I didn’t even get to send I kept copying and pasting u until it makes a long paragraph because I wanted to try something but it just lagged and then I left WhatsApp and went back onto it and clicked on the friend I was texting but it didn’t open. Every time I click onto our chat, it doesn’t open it just lags on her name then I need to get off WhatsApp and on again I also turned off my phone and opened it again and still the same problem. I could open other peoples chat but not me and hers. It does let me go onto her contact info when I long click on her name but when I tried to get back onto our chat it wouldn’t work I even tried to do the chat search and it wouldn’t work. What would only work is the media,links and docs and the starred messages so please try to help me out with getting back onto our chat.❤️
  • WhatsApp freezing on iPhone X Feb 9, 2022

    By Leroy_Ray
    recently I've been having some trouble with it on my iPhone X. It freezes once I open it and no matter how long I wait for, it doesn't unfreeze. Force quitting the app, restarting my phone of powering the phone off then putting it back on after some time doesn't help. sometimes have a few seconds after relaunching it to move around before it freezes again and that It helped me resolve it the first time it happened by deleting over 40 GB of media from chats. Now it's started freezing on launch again and I can't even successfully delete any media from my WhatsApp to try to fix it. have a lit of free space on my phone by the way, so I'm not sure what the cause is. It happens so suddenly. One moment I'm using it, the next moment, it won't work no matter what. still see the notifications from messages coming in, but can't do anything about them.

    It doesn't work on my tablet, which is annoying (cannot get past entering my cell number, nothing happens). It works on my feature phone, but I can't organise my contacts; whatsapp directly copies from the phone's contacts, with no other options, and you cannot delete someone from whatsapp unless you delete them from the phone contacts. But overall it's handy to have, and works with international numbers.

    A nice alternative to the built in Messenger app in phones. Allows for texting anyone in the world without incurring charges. However, there is no ability to configure the app to only allow messaging from your contacts. In order to prevent - I should say reduce - spam messages, you need to set your profile to private. However, as indicated this still does not prevent spam from random, unknown senders. There really is no excuse for any app of this nature to not have decent blocking features.
  • Bugs Apr 26, 2022

    By Sydney Sider
    Dear Developers, this last update totally screwed up the app. - I’m getting blank screens where you can see the text box while typing. - The list of chats keeps moving down before you can select on it (so you enter the wrong chat) or - when stationary it always selects the chat below the one you select. So you have to select another chat to get into the one you want. Seriously? Revert to a previous safe build and do more testing before you push new updates out, it’s becoming annoying enough to make me want to report these bugs in a review. Happy to submit screen shots or video with version/phone info if needed (latest updated iOS and WhatsApp updated). Other then that my only other WhatsApp suggestions is -to allow users to edit or delete their messages (outside of disappearing messages) - to allow chat backup to other drives or apps or make it easier to use

    The videos you upload to your status sometimes do not sync with audio. I love using the app but it's been years with the same problems and the updates aren't helping in that regards. The funny thing is, the older version when the status section was added, i never had these issues. An update is supposed to make things NEW and IMPROVED. If a new update is released and I find that these issues are still current, I won't hesitate to Uninstall it. Please fix the app people.
  • Never seen a more garbage communication app May 22, 2022

    By officialkei
    Just to clarify I have been using WhatsApp for several years, if I had to guess it would be over 4 years, I have plenty of friends that use it and swear by it but I cannot fathom how frustrating it is to use sometimes. I came on here to express one thing and one thing only. Many of my colleagues use this app to video chat and to send text. I have added many contacts using WhatsApp however when I try to send a message or call these new contacts i am left with only inviting them to use the app, rendering the app completely useless at times. Allow me to specify my problem. Say for example I added a new phone number in my contacts list. I close the app to then open WhatsApp, I try to search for the new contact. I find the name, but when I try to send a message the only choice I have is to invite. This is mostly frustrating when I first add someone but I have contacts from a year ago that still need an invitation when they so clearly use the app on a daily basis. As long as this problem persists I don’t see myself using the app long term, if it wasn’t for this issue I would be ecstatic about the development. For now I’m disappointed and at a loss of words for how I would feel going forward.

    There are 0 notifications unless you open the app. I've done ALL the troubleshooting. All the settings are as they should be, software is up to date. It was working until 3-4 days ago then notifications just stopped. No changes were made on my end. I had to uninstall because it started being glitchy, then reinstall and it's even worse now.

    The app used to be user-friendly. Unfortunately, for some reason; you are not allowed to send videos that are more than 11 minutes (recorded videos safe on your celular gallery). If the video is more than 11 minutes, it will not allow you to share it. The app is good for sharing photos, gif and short videos.
  • App got worse after no choice then having to update Apr 11, 2021

    By CST&RT
    What happened to what’s app after the update. It got worse. What about being able to delete what you sent on both sides nit just from my chat, it used to not any more! You said there were improvements? Not at all! Improvements doesn’t mean to take away what worked well for many. improvements is enhancing adding not removing what works. What a disappointment this app fell short! Many feel the same! Security? That probably won’t be secure either anymore! Let’s see what will happen going forward with all the breaches and the unsecured and less encryption . I can go on and on. If you say you will improve, then do as you promise!

  • From Bad to Worse Feb 1, 2021

    By Silks777
    What was once a wonderful secure platform is fast becoming a laughingstock ever since it was touched by Facebook. So thoroughly disappointed. Relatives abroad had told me that Facebook is phasing out WhatsApp but demands that we give them all our contact details; I’m not for that. Apparently, In the UK, WhatsApp was given customers until the first week of February before they close an account if the customer refused to except terms to the detriment of customer privacy. Now there is a delay to this change? It’s still going to happen so why the delay? Could it be that this delay is to collect our information anyway without a permission, anyway? I have now started looking for a replacement to WhatsApp. I am sorry to be parting company with you but it isn’t the secure independent platform it once was and the quality has progressively deteriorated. To be honest, if I could opt for zero stars that would be the level at this point. I’ve been trying to speak to others over the platform but I’ve spent more time trying to reconnect or redial and it’s just not worth it. Another competitor bows out.

    They just ruined whatsapp and desguised it as an upgrade. Previously you could send yourself a message and view it on your phone and the WhatsApp Web interface. They "UPGRADED" WhatsApp Web and now you cannot do that (you don't have to keep your phone connected). The two interfaces no longer sync with each other! The change also makes it less secure! Update: they fixed it for a couple days, but it's still broken again now for the past week!

    In General, seems ok. However the computer version leaves a lot to be desired. There's no way to log in without having the phone app open too and scanning some box. Not everyone knows how to do that, me included. You should be able to just log into your account with your email and phone number once and be able to stay logged in. I don't like it at all, which is why I took stars away from it.

    With The recent update my phone doesn't load pictures, I checked the settings nothing changed. After a week of missing out on important images in my volunteer group, just in case I cleared my entire phone image (eventhough i had 2GB of free space) I then un-installed and re-installed the app to see if that fixed the problem. That didn't fix anything!! I've sent whatsapp msgs to Whatsapp help chat; you'll never get a response from a live person it clearly is a bot scanning your msgs 😡😡😡😡😡
  • They Now Banned Phone Numbers Everyday May 20, 2022

    By Kendo Swavey1
    Before, they don’t banned your phone number until maybe so much people report your phone numbers maybe when you are broadcasting fake things or maybe scammers that are sending spam messages or fake messages to scam people, but right now, since this new person took over WhatsApp, they will just seat down, and you will be logged out of WhatsApp, you will see a display messages telling you you have been logged out because someone has logged into your device in another place. They will now display (Verify, or Cancel ). When you verify, you see a message telling you , you your phone number has been banned from using WhatsApp. This is so bad , it’s not nice at all. You can’t just seat down and begging to banned people’s phone numbers for no reason. Same thing they do to you ok facebook, your facebook will not do anything bad , you will see that , your facebook account has been suspended. Not nice at all. It’s annoying. Please , Mark Zuckerberg, stop this.
