I realise WhatsApp is not a platform for watching content despite which last weekend they applied an update which completely took over my phone at which stage I uninstalled it straight away. I have in fact uninstalled other apps too. I normally watch content on my iPhone mainly just for convenience my laptop is not a MacBook however I have good antivirus/etc set up on there so that is secure however they do still try and hack my laptop luckily I rate Kasperky (no sales pitch intended) but still hackers have tried! Going back to my iPhone I spoke with their tech support guy he assured me I would be ok. I believe the hack on my phone was via WhatsApp as mentioned I deleted other apps too and checked my settings!!
Apologies for the long winded comment but yes it does make sense as those that want to censor will do malicious attacks in some way shape or form!! All very sad but best that everybody keep each other informed! Very frustrating to say the least but it proves that they are doing these things for a reason and most definitely to suppress the truth from being shared!!
