WhatsApp Services Monitoring Rumor
1/1/2012

It has been observed recently that there were warning messages spread on the mobile phones and the interactive online networks sent to mobile service users warning them about downloading a specific URL that had been sent to mobile phones. The warning messages alleged that the sender of that link was the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) that aimed to monitor and censor WhatsApp services.

The NTRA confirms that the claims set forth in these messages are untrue, and highlights the fact that the link sent to the users is a link related to the telecom services in one of the Arab countries and not Egypt. The NTRA, in this respect, calls upon the telecom services users in Egypt, not to believe in such rumors or anonymous information.
