  • Too bad, I’ve removed whatsapp plus 7 months ago. And I just realized that there is one PLUS folder in my Whatsapp folder. And that cause me 24 important hours for my work and business related conversation in whatsapp. A very bad “false alarm” from whatsapp. Suing Whatsapp can’t replace that 24 hours.
