WhatsApp Claims to be Striving to Maintain Iranians’ Connectivity

WhatsApp said it was working to keep users in Iran connected after the country restricted access to Instagram.

On Thursday, Meta Platforms Inc’s WhatsApp said it was working to keep users in Iran connected after the country restricted access to the Instagram app and social media platform.

The messaging service said in a tweet on Twitter that WhatsApp “will do anything” within its technical ability to keep the service on hand and not block Iranian phone numbers.

Iran on Wednesday imposed restrictions on access to Instagram and WhatsApp, the last remaining social media networks in the country, amid protests over the death of a woman in police custody, according to residents and internet monitor NetBlocks.

The killing of Mahsa Amini, 22, who was arrested by morality police in Tehran last week for “improper clothing”, has sparked outrage over issues including freedom in the Islamic Republic and the economy reeling from sanctions.

Protesters in Tehran and other Iranian cities set police stations and vehicles on fire on Thursday, as public anger over the death showed no signs of abating, and with reports of attacks on security forces.
