Can I use WhatsApp if my phone is rooted or using custom ROM?

Custom ROM and rooted devices are not supported by WhatsApp. There are too many variations in these customizations for us to maintain a working product. Furthermore, custom ROM and rooting do not allow the WhatsApp security model to function as intended. Your messages will not be protected with end-to-end encryption.

For the best WhatsApp experience, please use stock ROM and remove root.
