WhatsApp restricts text forwards to 5

WhatsApp has limited the number of text forwards from 20 to five.

The Facebook-owned mobile messaging app has announced they are reducing the number of texts you can send on in a bid to fight the spreading of "misinformation and rumours".

Speaking at a press conference held in Indonesia on Monday (21.01.19), WhatsApp's Vice President for Policy and Communications, Victoria Grand, said: "We're imposing a limit of five messages all over the world as of today."

This new restriction was initially only put into place last July in India, after the spreading of rumours on the app led to several deaths.
