"BEWARE THIRD PARTY SPAM"

January 14, 2014  |  By stellastar1962

 |  Version: WhatsApp Messenger for iPhone 2.5.12

Pros

Playground for SPAMMERS

Cons

SPAM playground

Summary

What's App does allow Third Party Spam to appear as if it is a message from What's App and it will end up costing you ... and no need for credit card details ... they just simply debit from your phone provider account ... be aware ... message came through as 19999922 ... and Oxergen8 Comms P/L ... as the Third Party Purchase on your bill ... deleting What's App ASAP..

Updated on Jan 18, 2014

In response to the third party purchase ... the company that supports 19999922 ... have acted in good faith and wavered the charges incurred.

Not sure if all other third party messages received through WhatsApp would have such a good outcome.

"Was great up until upgrade"

November 19, 2013  |  By hpforester

 |  Version: WhatsApp Messenger for iPhone 2.5.12

Pros

Only if free. Mine is still free, but if I had to pay, I would opt out.

Cons

The new texting software they're using sucks. When two people in a conversation type at once, letters don't get picked up. The software suggests some obsucre weird words for autocorrect. Delete is a nightmare as it deletes lines of text.

Summary

Free app for me suits the purpose. For paid options, I'd look into other apps. Maybe Viber or back to Skype.

"B E W A R E ! ! ! 20 mins after joining, H A C K E D"

September 05, 2013  |  By vimmal

 |  Version: WhatsApp Messenger for iPhone 2.5.12

Pros

... free ... for 1 year only ...

Cons

1. NO SECURITY ! 20 mins after joining yesterday [ in New Zealand ] my linked gmail account was hacked, for the first time , in Mexico . I have had this account for years . Luckily Gmail rejected the attack and instantly alerted me . Whoever the 3rd party was, that I opened my phone too, they are cracked by the Mexican Mob . B E W A R E ! ! !
2. No VOIP .
3. Automatically reads your address book and then " asks " if you want to alert your also-subscribed contacts . I bypassed this [ because I didnt want to ] but then they did it anyhow . All your friends are sent a stupid " HI , blah blah .."
4. No user authentication .
4.

Summary

DANGEROUS
CHEAP [ but costs , eventually ]
NO VOIP
MUCH BETTER ALTERNATIVES OUT THERE .
* * * * try LINE ! * * * * Millions of Chinese love this Taiwanese free app , WITH VOICE OVER !
* * * * try RAVER * * * *
AVOID ' WA' LIKE THE PLAGUE

"PERVERTS PLAYGROUND!"

July 05, 2013  |  By JGirlNYC74

 |  Version: WhatsApp Messenger for iPhone 2.5.12

Pros

Absolutely nothing!

Cons

A pervert's playground!

Summary

I am an officer and I do not have this app on my phone but my mother in law does. A friend of hers sent her a video of child pornography that is being distributed within Whatsapp. It is VERY disturbing and I was appalled by it. I went to my local precinct in the Bronx to report this and was told to contact Apple. I contacted Apple who made a note of this and stated that they would reach out to Whatsapp. Apple also suggested I contact Whatsapp about this as well. The idea that this app can be a perverts playground is DISGUSTING! Perverts can show child pornography to the entire world and get away with it!

"Massive security holes"

August 25, 2012  |  By ekdikeo

 |  Version: WhatsApp Messenger for iPhone 2.5.12

Pros

Few. Very few.

Cons

This app is so popular because it has absolutely no security whatsoever. Anyone can take over your account at any time, and the whole major point of it -- that it shares all of your contact information with the whatsapp servers -- is a horrific, horrific security violation, not just of your own security, but of ALL YOUR CONTACTS. Using WA is a very, very, very bad idea.

Summary

Avoid this app like the plague, and tell all your friends to avoid it, as well as any other apps that transmit ALL OF YOUR CONTACT DATA TO A THIRD PARTY. Also avoid any apps that do not have ANY form of user authentication to verify that you are actually the person you say you are.
