Like everyone else, I am just as fed up of spam messages or really cheese ads almost every single day on my Whatsapp (read: Whatsapp Spam is Getting Annoying). There’s now a way to report spam, and hopefully this will help Whatsapp hunt down all those agencies that illegally sell Whatsapp advertising, I urge everyone to start reporting spam ads.
On the new Whatsapp version that will be available very soon whenever you get a message from an unknown number you get the option to block them and report them as spam. You will still get the block option but it will be hidden inside the ‘more’ button. I’m really hoping this will stop the daily spam messages I get.
