Where can I find the channel once I’ve followed it?

All the channels you follow are located in the “updates” tab within WhatsApp. New posts by Carbon Brief will not appear alongside your personal chats or groups in WhatsApp. Therefore, it is important to turn on notifications for the channel if you wish to be alerted about new Carbon Brief content.

Can I reply to posts?

No. Unlike personal chats or groups in WhatsApp, you cannot respond to messages posted in our channel. However, you can forward posts to your own contacts, as well as react with emojis.

Can I unfollow the channel?

Yes. While in the channel, tap on the circle icon or three dots in the top right-hand corner of your screen and select “unfollow”.

What about my phone number?

As with any channel you choose to follow, your number is kept private and encrypted. It will not be visible to other followers. Carbon Brief also cannot see your phone number.

I don’t use WhatsApp. What do I need to do?

Download the app to your phone and then follow the instructions. There are versions for all the main systems – iPhone, Android and Windows, plus web and desktop versions. Please refer to WhatsApp’s privacy policy and Carbon Brief’s privacy policy.
