i tryd to load whatsapp,but it keeps asking to scan a pic with my smartphone. i have not got one.can i still load whatsapp ?I accept the 'internet' for what it is ... mainly paid for by advertising and tracking. I just find a way round when I'm searching.
The Edge browser has the privacy and services setting page below and I'm on the middle setting which has blocked trackers 4595 times, 881 of them from some organisation named Krux. Facebook have tried to track me 561 times. I'm not on Facebook although I use their Whatsapp which is free so I suppose Facebook would like to earn something from me ... but I never take any notice of internet ads or Google search results I don't want.

I might choose the strict setting and see what happens ....
