WhatsApp Messenger - Your phone date is inaccurate!


You are trying to configure WhatsApp Messenger on your new phone, but the following message is displayed:
  • Your phone date is inaccurate! Adjust your clock and try again.

Adjusting the date and time of the device didn't resolve anything!


This may happen when your phone comes with a pre-installed WhatsApp Messenger app. In most case you simply have to update the app to get it working.
  • Connect to your Wi-Fi network.
  • Open the Play Store app.
  • Search for WhatsApp Messenger.
  • Tap on the Update button.
  • Once the app is up-to-date, try to configure it again.
