WhatsApp's recent privacy policy changes have triggered a huge migration to more privacy friendly apps like Signal and others. But most of us find it difficult to delete WhatsApp because everyone else uses it. Watomatic tries to make your migration easier by letting your friends automatically know that you are moved to another app. Just set an auto reply message something like “I am not using WhatsApp anymore. Please use Signal…” and let it do the work for you.

This app is not associated with any company including WhatsApp, Facebook, Signal.

  • Auto reply does not work even after Watomatic is enabled

    Watomatic relies on WhatsApp notifications for auto reply to work. Most users usually have notifications enabled so should work straight out of the box but otherwise please make sure WhatsApp notifications are enabled and WhatsApp fingerprint lock is disabled for this app to work.


  • Why not use WhatsApp business account for auto replies?

    You cannot use business account without accepting the new privacy policy that everyone is trying to avoid.

  • Will this be available for iOS in the future

    This app relies on Android specific notification quick replies feature to function. This may not be possible on iOS.
