WhatsApp is the go-to messaging app for many companies—and rightly so. It’s free, incredibly user-friendly, and a great way to share information quickly without being bogged down by complicated systems. But one downside is that WhatsApp isn’t exactly a secure way to exchange data internally. While WhatsApp offers free text message encryption, they don’t offer “end-to-end encryption,” which means the data is encrypted on a computer or mobile device before it is transmitted but decrypted on a computer or mobile device after it is received.

WhatsApp is the most widely used messaging app in the world, and millions of people use it every day to communicate with friends and family. However, being the most popular also means WhatsApp is also the most targeted—the company is constantly trying to improve its product, and users are constantly trying to take advantage of it. As a result, users sometimes discover features they didn’t know about or discover those features have been altered in ways that don’t sit well with them. When WhatsApp users discover these changes, they often react in unexpected ways. Here are seven of the most common reasons users stop using WhatsApp.

  • Difficulty in presenting a professional mindset through an app

All government employees use WhatsApp to communicate at work for its features, user-friendly interface, and overall experience.

  • Topics and agendas can be hard to discuss

WhatsApp is popular and widely used across all ages. But some people find it hard to send messages via WhatsApp. This is because there can be confusion between WhatsApp conversation topics and agenda. Communication becomes difficult when two or more people are talking at the same time, especially when talking over a mobile phone. Conversations can become confusing when subjects are being discussed, and topics of discussion are lost or forgotten. To avoid this, it’s advisable to have a plan of action or an agenda before two or more people begin talking to prevent confusion.

  • Contact numbers are essential

There are many situations in life were asking for someone’s phone number can feel awkward or intrusive—a job interview is one of them. But there’s an alternative: asking someone for their email address. And in some cases, asking someone for their email address is the right alternative. Even if you’re not sure about the person, you can at least extend an invitation to connect on a professional networking service by asking for their email address.

  • It is not suitable for sensitive information

WhatsApp has proven to be one of the most popular ways to send and receive messages in the digital age. And while WhatsApp Messaging is an excellent alternative to SMS texting, it’s important to keep in mind that it is not secure. There are a host of reasons why, sensitive or not, you should not use it as a replacement for text messaging, especially for work-related communications.

  • You will only see who has already read your messages

After sharing an idea, some developers opted to hide the ‘seen by’ message, stopping them from determining who has read their message. The option was only removed in the latest version of the app.

  • Messages can be deleted

Deleting for everyone prevents recipients from being able to retrieve deleted messages. In the “delete for everyone” setting, the only way to recover a deleted message is to undelete it. Almost every parent has had a sinking feeling that comes when their child has deleted something important. Whether it is a school project, homework, or even a message from a friend, the panic that comes from not knowing if something is gone forever is almost unbearable. But have you ever thought about how much worse it might be if deleting messages for everyone was unsuccessful? Or worse, if the recipient sees your message even before it is deleted?

  • You need to roundup

If you work in a large organization or manage a team of employees or contractors, you know that sometimes, you just need a roundup. Sometimes, you need a recap. And sometimes, you need to find out who’s calling who, what project, when, and why.
