Anytime Anywhere App - WhatsApp changed the way we communicate.
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.
**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.

Won’t restore my data
I had an issue with receiving notifications from this app for about two months. I did everything: turning off and on the notifications from the app and my phone, shutting off my phone, resetting it, updating my phone and the app many times. Then I decided to just delete the app and reinstall. It did the trick. However now, I can’t back up my media on the app because of storage space. I’ve deleted over 2k of photos and videos from my gallery, deleted more than half my apps on my phone, and cleared/deleted multiple chats on iMessage and WhatsApp. I finally reached to the point where I was able to backup my stuff. It worked for a while, but then the app shut down. Once I opened it again, it told me I had to clear 5.34GB again. After deleting all those things, I’m required to delete more. My phone capacity is 128GB and my phone only holds 83GB. I don’t understand where the issue is and why this is happening. No, I did not contact WhatsApp support. I’ve contacted them with my other issue and I didn’t not receive much help. This won’t be any different. It’s frustrating. This issue doesn’t seem to happen to anyone else I know, just with me.
