BOA Whatsapp group

Bringing members together to ask questions and share ideas, the BOA is delighted to launch our WhatsApp group.

The community is available to all members, free of charge, and it is your place to network with other members. 

What’s a WhatsApp group?

You can message multiple people at once in a WhatsApp group. This is really handy if you want to chat with a few members or all members of BOA.

Is WhatsApp safe?

Your messages and calls are automatically protected by something called ‘end-to-end encryption. This means that only you and the person you’re chatting with can read what is sent.

But as with everything online, there are risks to be aware of, including scams, viruses and misinformation. Here are some tips for staying safe using WhatsApp:

  • Only message people you know. Anyone with your number can send you a message or add you to a WhatsApp group, so make sure that you know and trust them before chatting with them.
  • Don’t click on links or download files sent from people who aren’t contacts. These could contain viruses or take you to fake websites that are set up by scammers to get your personal or financial information.
  • Look out for misinformation. False claims or fake stories can spread easily online. WhatsApp has created a list of tips to limit the spread of rumours or fake news. Read the tips here.
  • Make sure you’re using the most up-to-date version. Find out how to check this and download any updates to WhatsApp.

How do I use WhatsApp?

WhatsApp is simple to use once you get the hang of it. It’s a messaging app, so it works in a similar way to texting.
