Digital Citizenship Guide – Whatsapp

WhatsApp is the world’s most popular messaging service, with around two billion users exchanging texts, photos, videos and documents, as well as making voice and video calls. For most people it has replaced standard SMS messaging completely. Its end-to-end encryption means messages can only be viewed by the sender and any recipients: not even WhatsApp can read them.

The fact that it’s completely free, reliable and so widely used makes it a fantastic online tool, but as with all social media, it is not without its potential dangers and pitfalls. In this guide, you'll find tips on a number of these potential risks such as scams, strangers and location sharing. If you have any further questions or worries, please do get in touch!
