Fantastic app

Do you mind if I suggest ? Can we have an option where we can choose list where only the list can see dp and the last seen status instead blocking the unwanted by not giving them the visibility ?
Another important is as this has been the most powerful media across the globe with all ages and across all seasoned and unseasoned lifestyles , can you please filter wrong messages and let use the app more productively, positively and constructively ? As there are all classes of people and all kinds of mentalities , we are coming across panic attacks , wrong and destructive messages and depressing messages, cheap entertainment being circulated rampantly. Request you to take this up very seriously and filter such messages with certain criteria , age , their actual photo their phone numbers , etc before anybody posts.. another idea which I can suggest is the person who first posts such messages or any message. Let the first person’s number be carried along with the message throughout , so that first person will be more responsible to post authentic and constructive message.

Change of the passcode rather than using the phones same passcode, and chat hide feature

Dear whatsapp developers i m using whatsapp since past 6 years...seen many changes and evaluation from then....its all going seem less but there are few issues which i would address u....after enabling the touch-id in whatsapp app...security features increased and in my opinion it was necessary to do so...but pls dont use the same touch-id and passcodes which we have set fr our phne...its must be different as it will increase extra security and one more issue i need to address u is that while chatting or while lying on the whatsapp app....when i switch to notification center and when i come back to whatsapp app....there my screen turns white for few milliseconds which seems that it is slowing down as i m using iPhone 8 plus...and pls add the hide feature in whatsapp as hike is giving this feature....it is really necessary in my opinion...pls look after my concerns regarding this update.

Unable to update status

I am unable to update status on the app since 3 days now. The error showing is “something went wrong. Please try after 24 hours”. Even after trying after 24 hours, still getting the same error message. It feels very irritating to go through this. None to provide any solution to this problem. I have even mailed the whatsapp team to look into this regard but no one has even acknowledged yet or provided any solution to this. The app is so pathetic that I am unable to even backup my chat history on the app where it’s stuck on 53% and not moving a bit ahead since 2 days even though I have good internet connection. I don’t understand whom to contact or what to do with this problem. For an app with this huge base and backed by the tech leader like facebook, this is a worst service that the whatsapp has given. Having seen the jump of #signal app, it’s time to move and chuck whatsapp to their foot level. I will wait for another 24 hours to get this resolved or I’ll first make sure I along with my family member and friends to install signal. Time’s not far to see the downfall of whatsapp with such pathetic service. If you still wish to serve your users do address my and others who are going through this problem and resolve the issue immediately.
