The truth is that All social networks and online services have a minimum age to open an account.. Facebook, Instagram and even Twitter They have this age limit. But the surprises have come with the latest changes in WhatsApp’s internal policies.
And that is the last update of the conditions and conditions of use of the service. you have reached the minimum age of 16 years open an account on WhatsApp. Until this last change, the minimum age is 14 years
Same age as opening an account and using Instagram and Facebook. That the minimum requirements have not changed, at least for now.
The changes will only take effect in the countries of the European Union Where is WhatsApp Ireland Limited, a company owned by Facebook made to serve the EU countries with different laws around the world.
For countries outside the European Union, the minimum age of 14 years to use WhatsApp will continue to be maintained.
