WhatsApp has become one of the most popular social networks in the world. With over 1.5 billion monthly active users. It sees over 60 billion messages a day on its platform. However, it does not work well for everyone. WhatsApp is becoming a big problem for a good percentage of mobile users. It’s called information overload. Some people even have difficulty managing the message flow and the boring good morning: goodnight messages and status images. If you are one of these, we recommend that you delete your WhatsApp account. But it does not have a support system to delete your account. So, you’ll have to do it yourself.
Deleting your account will:
