How to check if WhatsApp is faulty?

Those who may have difficulty with WhatsApp can check other social media apps, such as rival Twitter, for reports.

If you don’t have a Twitter account, Down Detector will notify users when the app crashes or crashes.

If an issue that may not be common occurs, try checking your device’s internet connection or exiting the app before signing back in.

When did WhatsApp stop working?

WhatsApp first hit our screens in February 2009 and as of 2021 it has two billion monthly active users.

Facebook and Instagram often experience minor individual outages, but it’s rare for apps to stop working altogether.
