Not sure when this happened but the CIDR list is no more [WayBack

Dear partners,
Please note that we have migrated the latest IP pools of WhatsApp to Facebook Mobile Partner Portal. Feel free to browse to the Settings page of the portal and download the latest WhatsApp IP pool: 
Further IP pool updates are also done through the portal and are no longer distributed via email or through WhatsApp web site.
If you have not yet registered on the Mobile Partner Portal or have difficulties accessing it - please request access through the following form and we'll be happy to assist:
For any technical requests please contact us through the Support section of the portal: 
WhatsApp team

In the past it was the place to get the CIDR so you could either block or allow WhatsApp traffic: [earlier WayBack]

It is still widely cited as way to regulate WhatsApp traffic, for instance at these places:

Time to find an automated way to get the replacement list. Maybe the below helps (via [WayBackBlock facebook messenger and whatsApp on Dlink router – Super User)

WhatsApp FAQ – Formatting your messages

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/01/26

Oh cool:

Formatting your messages –

WhatsApp allows you to format selected text inside your messages.


To italicize your message, place an underscore on both sides of the text, like so: _text_


To bold your message, place an asterisk on both sides of the text, like so: *text*


To strikethrough your message, place a tilde on both sides of the text, like so: ~text~


To monospace your message, place three backticks on both sides of the text, like so: ```text```

Alternatively: On Android, you can tap and hold the text you’re typing > More …

Convoluted: moving your WhatsApp history to a new phone

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/11/21

Not without reason there is a FAQ: How do I move my chat history over to my new Android phone?

Since Helium didn’t restore the WhatsApp settings and Android File Transfer refused to paste large files to the new Android phone, this is what I did

  1. On the target phone:
    1. Uninstall WhatsApp on the new phone
    2. Delete the folder in /storage/emulated/0/WhatsApp
  2. On the source phone:
    1. Follow the WhatsApp back-up steps in the above FAQ link
    2. Zip the folder/storage/emulated/0/WhatsApp
    3. Transfer it to DropBox using GhostCommander and the GC DropBox plugin
  3. On the target phone:
    1. Transfer from DropBox
    2. Unzip it to the folder /storage/emulated/0/WhatsApp
    3. Install WhatsApp
    4. Restore the backup
