I understand that in your question you are using a Windows OS which has been the victim recently of having the application removed from the app store. The reason why the application has been removed is because the app has had issues in regards to having errors on the app only for the Windows OS.

The app has been taken off to be fixed in order to be placed back on the app store. Windows has stated that this is only a temporary measure but has not yet given out a time frame for the app to be fixed then replaced to the app store.

I want the solution for my problem


WhatsApp Faq has posted online that your phone as of 2016, was no longer supported based on the Windows 7 OS. Unfortunately, your phone also can't upgrade to the 8.0 or higher OS needed to support the app. Your only solution is to purchase a new device, find a comparable app that your phone supports or use WhatsApp on the PC. Even apps like Skype no longer support Windows 7 devices.

How do I install WhatsApp on my Microsoft Lumia 640?

I keep getting "incorrect password or user name ID.

Since WhatsApp does not have a password setup, according to WhatsApp Windows OS FAQ, this has to do with your Microsoft Account. Try to sign back in on your device. If you still can't install the app, then there is an issue with your Microsoft Account. You would then login via the PC to your Microsoft Account to see if you need to verify your password or your account or have triggered a 2 Step authorization.

How do I install or download WhatsApp on my Windows phone without signing in with my Windows live account?

I need to install without signing in because I am having a problem signing to my Windows phone. I keep getting activation error

You can't install any apps without correcting the Microsoft Account Error. You will need to contact Microsoft directly. Their website now has a Live Chat portal as an option along with a regional phone number. Just like Android OS requires a Google Account and iOS requires an Apple Account, none of your apps already installed will update. Usually, the activation error occurs when you are trying to install an app that needs Family Account administrative permission due to age restrictions, your account was flagged for SPAM, or you triggered a Security Warning with the account. Check for these issues first.

I am asking for your assistance on the steps that I need to take to access it. Please.. I have tried: Clicking WhatsApp, to send a request for registration purpose but it doesn't go through.

Uninstall what you do have right now in terms of the WhatsApp installation process. Reboot your device then manually sync your Microsoft Account. You will need Windows 8.0 or higher now for your device to be supported with WhatsApp. Users that had the app on older OS, are now not able to update the app or use it until they update their OS to Windows 8 or purchase a new device.
