Whatsapp users have been hit by an annoying bug which stops them seeing the name of a message sender when they receive a notification.
The problem appears to have been caused by a recent Whatsapp update. You might think it’s a little bug, but it’s proving very annoying. Dozens of people have taken to Twitter to complain about the glitch and several have written posts on Apple’s support forum looking for a solution.
‘I updated WhatsApp to version 2.18.60 and am now getting notifications without the contact name appearing!!!’ one person tweeted. ‘Help!’ On the Apple forum, another unhappy Whatsapper wrote: ‘WhatsApp notifications on my iphone 7 do not show the name of the sender any more.
‘If preview is turned on it shows both the name and the message, which I don’t want for privacy reasons. Any way to turn it back to the original design where only the name shows but not the message text itself?’
Luckily for you there is a way to fix the problem. Just go to WhatsApp Settings, click on Notifications and turn on ‘Show Preview’. The visit iPhone Settings, Notifications, WhatsApp, Show Previews and select Never. A new update has been released which claims to fix the bug, but some users are still claiming it’s affecting their phones.
