WhatsApp is banning under-16s from using messaging app in Europe
Other multinational companies are also planning changes

People in Europe are going to have to be at least 16 years old in order to use WhatsApp, under changes the Facebook-owned messaging platform is introducing in the EU.
WhatsApp's minimum age will remain 13 years outside of Europe, in line with its parent company.
The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is created to give people in the EU greater protection over their personal data. For example, WhatsApp will now let users download a report detailing the sort of data that the app holds on them.
Teenagers elsewhere in the world needn't fret: the app is said to be keeping its age limit at 13 outside the EU.
The broadcaster adds that some other tech companies, including Apple, will give all of their users, regardless of where they live, the same data rights.
Asset managers grappling with newEuropean Union data privacy rules have been turning to the insurance sector to help limit the fallout from business-crippling cyber attacks. The cross-checking of a user's age is quite hard for WhatsApp and it has not revealed the measures taken to identify the age range.
The proposal comes following hearings in Congress on the hijacking of private data on tens of millions of Facebook users by a consulting firm working on Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.
GDPR is one of Europe's biggest overhaul of online privacy, which gives Europeans the right to know what data is stored on them and the right to have it deleted.
