OK. We thought this would be pretty obvious, but clearly there are more vulnerable people out there than we thought. In any case, here’s a super helpful PSA:
The WhatsApp messages regarding WannaCry affecting online transactions and spreading through WhatsApp are FAKE.
WhatsApp may launch a peer-to-peer payment system in India and is likely to be powered by the Unified Payments Interface (UPI), which is a cross-bank payment system backed by the Indian government. Peer-to-peer transactions are electronic money transfers made from one person to another through a P2P payment application.
WhatsApp has announced that there will be a change to its existing status feature. What kind of a change? Well, something along the lines of being able to post pictures or videos that vanish after 24 hours.
WhatsApp has just introduced a new way of securing your account. If the standard SMS verification isn’t enough, you can now add another layer with its new two-step verification. So even if someone grabs hold of your SIM or hijacks your mobile number, this will prevent unwanted access to your WhatsApp account.
WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging services in the world, with over 1 billion users worldwide. In Malaysia, it has practically replaced the traditional SMS platform when it comes to text messaging with others.
Now, the Facebook-owned company is extending their services and adding even more features to WhatsApp Calling.
WhatsApp has become one of the most popular messaging apps in Malaysia. In fact, it’s so popular that it has virtually rendered texting (or SMSing) obsolete — I only receive SMSes from scammers, the bank and my mobile operator telling me that my data quota has finished.
WhatsApp has changed the way we text and now they’re making it a little better than it was before.
WhatsApp has finally rolled out end to end encryption for all users. Initially released only for Android users via Open Whisper Systems, the new encryption now covers all forms of communications including WhatsApp calls, photos, videos and file transfers on both Android and iOS platforms.
If you’re running on the latest version of WhatsApp, encryption will be enabled automatically by default.
Have you ever been annoyed at how
darn difficult it is to place emphasis in WhatsApp conversations? Well, now it’s going to be much easier because if you’re on an iPhone, the text messaging service will let you use text formatting in your conversations.
Are you having disputes or problems with your telco? Escalating your issue to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) is now an instant message away as they have just activated a dedicated Whatsapp channel for complaints.
This can be used for any issues related to telecommunications, broadcast, internet service, postal service and online gambling. The number to message is 016-220 6262 (MCMC).
The WhatsApp channel is available 24 hours and they will respond between 9AM to 5PM from Monday to Friday. We suggest that you save this number for future reference.

If you’re using a 16GB iPhone, we know how frustrating it gets when you’re out of storage. Sure you can free up space by moving your photos but recently there’s a bug on WhatsApp that appears to be sucking up more storage than usual.
