Checkpoint Research has unearthed a new flaw in WhatsApp. The vulnerability can potentially allow people to fake messages. The worst part is that there is currently no fix for this issue.
WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new system that will allow users to remain active on the same WhatsApp account across multiple devices at the same time. The release of this feature alongside a dedicated WhatsApp app for the iPad would make a lot of sense.
WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram seem to be down for most of the users globally. People have complained that they are not able to send messages. Apparently, only text messaging is working on WhatsApp, when users are trying to send photos, videos, and voice messages it is not going through. Users are greeted with “download failed” error message.
WhatsApp has disclosed a vulnerability in its iOS and Android client which allowed hackers to install spyware on devices by exploiting a buffer overflow vulnerability in the WhatsApp VoIP stack.
It looks like Facebook services across the world are currently affected by an outage. This includes Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. Combined, these services are used by over a billion people on a daily basis.
In a move that’s going to make a lot of iPad owners happy, WhatsApp is finally working on adding iPad support to its app. While WhatsApp is available on the App Store, it is only compatible with the iPhone and does not show up when searched from an iPad.
How can Facebook, a company that has relied on handing out personal user information, find a new way forward in 2019?
WhatsApp has finally added Face ID/Touch ID support to its iOS app. This means that one can now lock WhatsApp and protect it using Face ID or Touch ID. Given how popular the app has become in Europe, UAE, India, and other parts of Asia, this was a much-needed feature.
The latest WhatsApp update for iOS has added the ability to lock the app using Face ID or Touch ID. Since iOS itself locks a native app locking ability, it is up to developers to add this feature to their apps.
