Court of Brazil has blocked the WhatsApp messenger

Moscow. December 17. Brazilian authorities have blocked access to WhatsApp that allows you to exchange messages on smartphones.

The court of the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo decided to suspend the service for 48 hours due to the failure of U.S. companies to fulfill the previously rendered decision of the court on one criminal case, reports the BBC.

The CEO of WhatsApp Jan koum said that he had regrets, seeing Brazil isolated from the rest of the world.

The owners of rival messenger Telegram reported that a few hours after the decision of the Brazilian court to their service connected more than 1 million new users.
