As per the report, users who witnessed the sudden logout error was shown a prompt that stated, “your phone number is no longer registered with WhatsApp on this phone. This might be because you registered it on another phone. If you didn’t do this, verify your phone number to log back into your account.”
This is not the first time that an unknown bug affected WhatsApp users, especially the Android users out there. Just earlier this week, some Android beta users found that their older WhatsApp messages were not loading after upgrading to the latest beta version of the application.
WhatsApp has fixed this bug in a latest beta update. Meanwhile, the messaging platform is yet to acknowledge the sudden log out issue and fix it.
