WhatsApp bug causes multi-gigabyte uploads on cellular network

A bug in the backup function of WhatsApp has caused a huge increase in cellular data usage for some users. The backup bug caused WhatsApp to upload huge amounts of data to the cloud, unfortunately in some case also when only a mobile network was available.

It was such a good app until Suckerberg acquired. Must do some research on Signal and how that behaves.

Thank you for posting the info on the backup bug. (Damn, no thumbs up emoji)
