WhatsApp with WatchGuard

Concerns about the new privacy policy from WhatsApp caused a surge of requests from South African customers to block the service in their office and protect staff's privacy.

If you are like most of us and accepted the new policy without reading it like you would a cookie on a website, here is more information to help you better understand the video.

How to block WhatsApp on my firewall:

The good news. If you have not explicitly opened this service on your firewall and you have strict rules of what is allowed then you will not need to make any further changes to your current rules, but if you have an open network or allowed this service, simply delete the rule or add more restrictions on what traffic is allowed from your office on your firewall to stop all communication to the WhatsApp service.

As always if you are not sure what to do simply call RD support and will assist you to block the service.
