Today, children migrate to social networks and instant messengers they hear. This is one of the reasons why many people have left the 2GO, a renowned IM some years ago, because it did not take a serious Age Limit on users. Now, WhatsApp raised the Minimum Age limit to 16. However, WatsApp places this limit for other reasons, and is also applicable only to users in Europe.
The new privacy standards caused by human activity take effect in Europe next month, which requires all online services to put 16 years as the minimum age in which a person can enter. So far, users of WhatsApp had to be under 13, but to meet new regulations, the Minimum Age Limit of 16 years was introduced in Europe.
