Your Friend Lost Or Re-registered WhatsApp?

Are you so curious and want to know if anyone on your WhatsApp contact list lost their chat or Re-registered WhatsApp on their phone?

Do you have that contact(s) you want to keep a close eye on? Your boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, husband, uncle, aunty, dad or Mom who you want to know when they have lost their chat or re-registered their WhatsApp.

This article is quite technical to understand, so you have to read closely to know what this article is talking about.

NOTE: some persons have this feature activated on their WhatsApp account but really don’t know the function or its use.

You may be in a WhatsApp group chat or on your personal friend list and get a notification on the chat background which reads “Whiteman security code changed. Tap for more info.”

I’m sure most of you must have come across this notification on your chat list.

But really don’t know what it means. Well, when you see notifications like this it actually means two things.

1. Your contact (Maybe your friend, boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, husband, uncle, aunty, dad or Mom) lost their chat, therefore Re-registered WhatsApp on their existing phone.

2. Your contact (maybe your friend, boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, husband, uncle, aunty, dad or Mom) has changed their phone and re-registered their WhatsApp on that new device.

This is a great feature for some people because they will get to know or tell when a particular contact on their list lost their chat.

The fun about this is that when you see such notification, you may just decide to call the person and ask them if they lost their chat or Re-registered WhatsApp on their phone. The person out of shock may think you are a magician for being able to tell what actually happened to them.
