WhatsApp can bypass government internet shutdowns with a clever new feature

Instant messaging platform WhatsApp has launched a new feature that it says will help people stay in touch with friends and loved ones even during local government shutdowns.

The new feature enables users to have WhatsApp connect via an internet proxy, effectively bypassing the kind of local internet infrastructure that governments take offline or use to block websites and services during shutdowns.
