In the last few years, the technological evolution has made great strides towards the simplification of many functions, once difficult to implement. We also think only of phone calls: once upon a time making calls was an expensive activity and one that must always be evaluated very carefully. For example, making a call overseas was a choice that had to be carefully considered given the economic impact of a single call.
With i new means of communication that are made available to us day after day, such processes are incredibly faster, more intuitive and affordable for any pocket. Let’s think, for example, of social networks. Services such as Facebook or Instagramallow everyone to be in constant contact with everyone, regardless of how far they are.
There are now many services (Facebook and Instagram included) which, in addition to allowing short exchanges of messages, have functions for call or video call friends and family around the globe. Of all the instant messaging services that have stood out in this direction, one of the best known and most used always remains Whatsapp.
WhatsApp and the risks
WhatsApp is an instant messaging service, created in 2009 by two former Yahoo employees, Jan Konum and Brian Acton. In 2014 it was purchased by the entrepreneurial group A half, former owner of Facebook and Instagram. Thus was born an incredible communication network, all branded Meta.
WhatsApp was born, as mentioned, as instant messaging service. The intent is therefore to compete with the by now anachronistic SMS. WhatsApp is proposed as a fast, secure and above all free service. But the foresight of the creators does not stop there.
In fact, the service, despite being born with the clear intention of making people communicate with each other, via text messages, rapidly evolves its purpose. Text messages obviously remain but are joined by other services which, little by little, have helped to make WhatsApp unique and complete.
For example, the voice calls and video callswith the ability to connect up to 32 people at a time. It is also made possible to exchange any type of document, from photos to videos. With one of the latest updates it is also possible to send images on WhatsApp in very high quality, preventing the service from losing quality.
But despite the fact that the service is among the most used and appreciated in the world, some dangers they remain and sometimes it can be difficult to find a solution. How to do then?

WhatsApp therefore allows you to connect a lot of people simultaneously, managing to manage a huge amount of data.
