    WhatsApp is removed from App Store in China for national security reasons. Any implications for HK?

    Yes. Get your tickets ready because once that happens in HK, HK is over.

    So far no sign of it tho

    It wasn't removed for national security reasons. All of the HK-based apps (including ones provided by our government and finance companies) will also be removed because they don't have ICP licenses. This isn't fake news but it is misleading because it doesn't tell the full story

    By the way, Facebook and WhatsApp have been blocked in China for most of their existence.
