According to Movistar’s The Importance of Human Connections research, eight out of 10 Colombians use WhatsApp to communicate.
That means if you’re reading this article, you’re likely to use WhatsApp to talk to your loved ones, your boss, your customers, or basically anyone else who has your phone number.
Despite frequent use, there are still some warnings or information from the app that we are not aware of and one of them is Red alert appears when we try to send a message.
See here: (WhatsApp has a new feature called ‘private status’: that’s what it’s for)
This red warning presented as an exclamation point in a red circle means the message was not sent correctly, be it text, photo or video.
It usually appears in the field of sent and read symbols.
This can happen when you don’t have a stable internet connection.
What you can do is if you want to click on this option and try forwarding you will be able to do so, but you can cancel the message if it is no longer convenient to send it.
According to the Xataka tech portal, if the red exclamation mark continues to appear, it may mean that you don’t have an internet connection, you don’t have permission to send messages, or the app isn’t working.
