Requested access to photos

I had a pop up from WhatsApp requesting access to all photos. I can't even remember the last time I used the app (it has been over a year) and at the time the pop up was displayed I was browsing in Safari. Since I didn't expect the pop up I mindlessly clicked Allow and then immediately went into settings to revoke all photos access. WhatsApp should not be requesting access to all photos out of the blue.

I'm giving 4 stars because the app worked fine as far as I remember. I wanted to report the issue to WhatsApp but have not found a way to do that so am attempting to let somebody know by writing a review. I'll probably delete the app now though to avoid future occurrences. It makes me suspicious of what it could possibly be doing in the background without my knowledge because I didn't do anything that should result in WhatsApp wanting access to my photos.

**UNSAFE DO NOT USE**

My account and multiple people I work with all had our accounts hacked on the same day. WhatsApp claims that when you verify your phone number, any accounts still logged in on other devices will automatically log off, and they will have to verify your phone number. This is not true, for the people that hacked our workplace was still able to use our numbers and impersonate us. We have screenshots and a record of the times on Reddit. Not only did they take over our phone numbers, but they also changed the six-digit security pin and the emails associated with our accounts.

Customer support does not exist. There is nobody to talk to. You can send an email, but you’ll get an automated reply. They said that you could wait seven days to log into your account without a six-digit pin and delete your account that way. So while you wait the seven days, they have full access to your account and number.

WhatsApp is only end-to-end encrypted, meaning all messages are stored on the device that initially sent the message. Everything else can easily be exploited to gain access to your account. This severe security flaw has been used repeatedly with the addition of zero customer support.

A huge bug on iOS version

Today I updated the latest version and I am able to write the review. I reached out to help multiple times regarding this issue but of no use. Such useless service. Now about the issue, you messed up something with iOS version. I am unable to change my number on WhatsApp. It always says I am not using the official WhatsApp, when I reached the help, your team gave me a link which redirects me here again and I don’t see any option to install as I already have the same app installed it allows me only to open. Till yesterday I could not even write this review. Whenever I clicked on write review, it used to say I am not owning this app. As I updated the app today, I am able to write the review now that means your team fixed something with this update. Next issue, as part of the above issue I took the backup my chat history to iCloud and deleted the account, hoping that will clear any glitches but while doing it WhatsApp completely deleted the backup from iCloud. How can WhatsApp delete my backup without asking for confirmation? This is ridiculous. I should be able to download the chat history with any other number.
