WhatsApp has revealed users will have to be 16 years old to use the service soon.

It's going to be introducing the new rule throughout Europe over the next number of weeks.

At the moment, you need to be at least 13 to use WhatsApp in Europe.

It's not been revealed how WhatsApp plan to enforce the rule going forward.

Outside the European Region, the minimum age of use will remain 13 years.
