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.

Bugs

There are a few things I'd like to see corrected in WhatsApp.
1. On speaker and with speed set to greater than 1X, playback is halted anytime I lock my phone. I think it's been this way for a couple years now—through three different phones and a number of different iOS versions—so this would be an app-specific bug. When listening on speaker and at normal speed, playback is not halted when the device is locked. When sped up and routed through earbuds (wired or BT), playback continues with the device locked. So higher speeds on speaker seem to be the problem.
2. Banners never work with this app ... ever. If they did, I'd use only badges and banners, leaving message notifications off both my lock screen and out of my notification center. This is, again, a problem that's persisted over the years and across various iOS versions and devices.
3. Please expand the availability of ringtones. WhatsApp only recognizes a small portion of the Apple ringtones and none of my custom ones. I would like to be able to change my message tone from "Pulse" but not to the obnoxious tones that remain.
