How Does WhatsApp Work?

the app operates like an SMS exchange and uses phone numbers integrated from the user's address book, there are no pins or usernames required. The application also allows users to block contacts, share their locations, keep track of e-mail histories, personalize notification sounds, and many other features.

Is WhatsApp Safe?

WhatsApp’s security has been a subject of controversy, namely due to the lack of encryption of backuped messages. We recommend reading the official Privacy policy in order to take note of the way WhatsApp uses your data.

Is WhatsApp Free?

You can download and use WhatsApp for free. WhatsApp messages and calls use your internet connection (which you may have to pay for).

Temporarily Banned WhatsApp Accounts

According to the WhatsApp Help Center, if you receive an in-app message stating that your WhatsApp account has been temporarily banned, this is most likely because you are using an unsupported version of WhatsApp. Unsupported apps, such as WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp, or others, are altered versions of WhatsApp. These violate WhatsApp's Terms of Service. If you do not switch to the official app (this download) after being temporarily banned, your account might be permanently banned.

How to Download WhatsApp For Tizen

Samsung mobiles use the Tizen OS, and the Tizen Store instead of the Google Play Store. As of October 2020, WhatsApp is no longer available on the Tizen Store because it is not supported on Tizen OS. Evidently, you can also no longer update WhatsApp in the Tizen Store. You must switch to another compatible device to use WhatsApp. Or alternatively, there is IMO, which is similar to WhatsApp.
