There are signs that WhatsApp, a popular messaging service, is having problems as of Tuesday morning.
Many users, including NewsReport readers in Nigeria, Ghana, and elsewhere, tried using WhatsApp many times starting at 8.30 am but were unsuccessful.
Of those who logged a report, 55 percent said they were having issues sending messages, 41 percent were experiencing a server connection, and five percent simply said there was a problem with the app.
While WhatsApp is yet to comment on the outage itself, several frustrated users have taken to Twitter to discuss it.
The tool was one of three privacy features announced by Mark Zuckerberg, founder, and CEO of WhatsApp’s parent company Meta, in August.
