The popular messaging app, WhatsApp, also faces a problem that affects millions of users worldwide. Users cannot view whether the person they are talking to is online or recently seen.
Today, millions of people messaging at the same time, WhatsApp, can experience troubled moments from time to time. The application started to go through such a process again in the past minutes. Many WhatsApp users have become unable to see the last person they are talking about or if they are online.
According to the data in Down Detector, an international observation site, WhatsApp is currently experiencing troubled moments. 68% of those who stated that they had trouble in WhatsApp stated that they could not view the last seen or online status of the person they talked to in the popular application.
Latest situation in Down Detector:
Also, according to other data on the platform, 26% of users have trouble connecting to WhatsApp. About 3,000 WhatsApp users have reported to Down Detector that they have had problems with the application in the past few minutes.
Again according to the map in Down Detector, this distress in WhatsApp affects the users in Europe, the United States and South America the most. Many users on Twitter also state that they have problems with WhatsApp.
In addition to the points where problems are seen intensely, many users in our country also complain about the same situation. Users say that the last seen or online status seen in many places is not viewable. No move has been made by WhatsApp yet.
The issue of the last seen and online status of the user seen on WhatsApp appears on WhatsApp Web as well as iOS and Android versions of WhatsApp. Users who use WhatsApp from their computers also experience the same problem, but most users who experience the problem also state that they do not have a problem sending or receiving messages.
The source of the error has been determined:
According to the tweets shared by WABetaInfo, which shares the latest status information about WhatsApp, this problem seen on WhatsApp is caused by a different problem on the server side of the company. The privacy preferences of the users are automatically changed to “No one” due to the problem experienced on WhatsApp servers.
However, WABetaInfo also tells you not to try and delete WhatsApp if you experience the problem. According to the sharing, once the application is deleted once, users are having trouble logging in again.
