There are several occasions in which a corrupt government has cut communication to the inhabitants of their country as a form of censorshipsomething WhatsApp apparently wants to fight with a system similar to the one we found in Telegram since the riots in Iran in 2020.
Since 2016, a total of 74 countries have restricted internet access to their inhabitants, the most recent being Iran’s efforts to hide brutality against protestersas well as those of Russia with their invasion of Ukraine. That is why, as we read on whatsapp blogwe can now use a proxy to connect to the network.
This will mean that in those countries where access to messaging services such as WhatsApp has only been blocked, can connect through an alternative proxy server to continue being able to communicate with ours. These servers are set up by volunteers and organizations around the world, so its reliability should be extremely high.
