Whatsapp is an instant messaging application that now has over 2 billion users around the world. Indeed, it is a secure and easy to use application where it is very easy to make calls and create discussion groups, just like on Messenger .
In addition, some users found themselves with a large number of chat groups that clutter their screens and are probably no longer useful (beach trips, travel, review of exams, etc.).
