As expected, a lot of people were shocked and taken aback when such a serious bug surfaced on WhatsApp. An application which is very heavily used, all over the world. ??A lot of users on WhatsApp use the blocking feature to restrict users from messaging them, the fact that the application was allowing these users to do the exact thing which the blockers did not want to happen was definitely a thing of concern not only for the users but for WhatsApp as well. As reported by WABetaInfo, the popular blog on WhatsApp which posts about the developments related to the messaging app, this wasn’t just a single time happening, but instead, a lot of users complained about the same issue.
