WhatsApp down: Many users report problems with messaging app
Many WhatsApp users around the world have reported issues with the messaging app.
The majority of these are around the last seen feature, while 24% said they are having connection problems.
Many Users said they cannot see when their contacts were last online, and are unable to adjust their security settings.
A map on the Down Detector website says that issues are being reported around the world, but with Europe appearing to be the epicentre.
WhatsApp users have taken to Twitter to report the issue, saying they are unable to change their last seen settings in the app’s privacy settings.
One tweeted: “Has anyone else’s ‘last seen’ on WhatsApp been automatically turned off and can’t turn it back on?!”
While another posted: “Does anyone know what’s going on with #whatsapp ? “Last seen” suddenly says nobody and I haven’t changed it.”
And one added: “Why would Whatsapp remove last seen, online and typing feature”.
