In Russia, problems began with downloading WhatsApp on PC and Mac

Users in Russia began to report problems when trying to download WhatsApp on PC and Mac from the messenger's official website. The resource itself opens, but when you click on the download button of the client, an error occurs.

Representatives of the service have not yet commented on this situation, but, remarkably, the problem disappears when the VPN is turned on.

Same the situation recently arose with downloading Windows, after which Microsoft announced the restrictions for users in Russia and Belarus. Perhaps soon the WhatsApp developers will publish some clarifications.

So far, there are no problems with the mobile applications of the messenger.
