WhatsApp is a messaging app created in 2009 and now owned by Facebook. It is available on Android, Windows smartphones, and iPhones, as well as on Mac or Windows devices. With WhatsApp, you can share images, pictures, videos, audio files, and messages with other people. The messenger also allows you to make free voice or video calls over the Internet. To protect users’ data, WhatsApp uses end-to-end encryption.
If you do not want to receive calls from some contacts, blocking will be an excellent solution to the problem. The required parameter is available in the settings on the "Account" page in the "Privacy" section.
A WhatsApp profile is directly linked to a phone number. If it was lost or had to be abandoned, you should link your account to a new number and inform the service about this.
This password will later be required in order to restore the data from the backup. It is also reported that if the user forgets the backup password, WhatsApp will not be able to help with its recovery.
The most important step is not to panic. After you realize your phone has been stolen, it is better to contact your telecom provider and block your SIM card to prevent any fraudulent use.
Active users constantly receive photos and videos in WhatsApp messages. Not all of them are of any value. They not only eat space on your smartphone, but also waste precious mobile traffic.
