WhatsApp is arguably one of the best instant messaging services that allows you to communicate with your friends and families living all around the world. The app has got a number of features that let you do many things in it.

While the app has a number of features for you to enjoy, there are a number of issues that are caused by the app every once in a while. Sometimes, you can’t send someone a message and other times the app itself just won’t launch.

One of the commonly faced WhatsApp issue is that WhatsApp shows black/blank screen when you try to launch it on your device. This issue has been reported by a number of WhatsApp users and it can be considered as a serious one as you just can’t access the app on your device.

There are a few possible ways to fix WhatsApp black screen on iPhone and Android device. While the these ways don’t guarantee they will fix the issue for you, at least you have something to do about the issue.

Method 1: Revoke All the Permissions

One of the things you can do to resolve the WhatsApp’s black screen issue is you can revoke all of the permissions that the app has on your device. This, in some cases, has worked to resolve the issue so you should give it a shot at least.

Open the Settings menu on your device and find and tap on WhatsApp. Then, deselect all of the permissions shown on the screen. Once that’s done, tap the WhatsApp app on your homescreen to launch the app.

You will find that the app now launches without any issues. You should now be on the main interface of the app.

If you think this resolved the issue for you, you can go back to the Settings menu and enable all of the permissions in there.

Method 2: Reinstall the App

If the above method didn’t work for you, you will want to reinstall the app on your device. This is the final thing you can do to resolve the issue.

Tap and hold on the WhatsApp icon on your homescreen until it starts to juggle. Then, tap on the x icon for the app and follow the on-screen instructions to uninstall the app.

Once the app’s uninstalled, head over to the App Store and download and reinstall the app on your device. The app will then launch and work fine on your device.

After reinstalling the app, you will find that all of your chat history and the files you had shared are gone. There’s nothing in the app and it’s all empty. Don’t worry! With WhatsApp Data Recovery, you can get back lost or deleted WhatsApp chats including messages, videos, and photos easily from iOS and Android phones.
