WhatsApp is a messaging application that can be downloaded for free in Android, iOS, Microsoft Windows desktop, and laptop software. This grand communication program was established back in 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum.
Their creation in WhatsApp was quite an interesting story. It was all because of their decision of leaving their job at Yahoo! to travel around the world. However, as soon as their savings are little by little sinking, they applied a respective position on Facebook. Unfortunately, life itself has a different plan for them.
And just like any other human being whose goals and dreams were crushed, disappointment is prominent in their eyes. Nevertheless, this failure was their setup for an epic supernova.
Because of the desire that Jan Koum has of building an application that shows statuses next to the individual names of users. He is inspired by his iPhone that he bought last January 2009. Jan thought that there is a great potential in the app industry on the few months old iPhone.
Koum discussed this idea with his friend Acton. Soon, they both visited Alex Fishman, an iOS developer for more insights.
For this reason, the two achieved their dream of creating their own messaging system. Decades and a year passed, society is now utilizing WhatsApp Messenger not only for personal use but also for business use.
This 2020, there are about 1.5 billion users od WhatsApp already. Most of these active users are entrepreneurs and employees working under a company. Nevertheless, multiple companies banned the use of WhatsApp because of data and security risks associated with this tool.
The good thing is, there has been an improvement with the application that includes WhatsApp archiving text messages and calls solutions. This is for the securement of each association and communications that use this application.
