What is WhatsApp?

WhatsApp is a free messaging, voice and video calling app that uses end-to-end encryption. All messages flowing through the platform are secured so that only the sender and the recipient can view them. The app doesn’t store your personal information, and only people you approve as contacts can message you. You can also message with groups of people. However, group messages can conflict with some privacy settings. For example, if you have blocked someone, they can still appear in a group message that you can see. The use of end-to-end encryption means that WhatsApp is unable to read your messages even if it wanted to.

Age Limit: 13+ minimum age according to WhatsApp
