    Hi @hady

    Due to Whatsapp will use for 80 & 443 port to transmitting the data. And traffic has been encrypted so unable detect by signature anymore so already removed from IDP signature.

    Please update IDP signature to latest version The signatures of whatsapp are left “authentication” and “Access”.

    Signature update will add new signatures or remove no-working signature from list.
