Not able to download WhatsApp for Lumia 520?

Not able to download WhatsApp for Lumia 520

You have to make sure that you have entered your legal age (18+) so that yours would not be a child account. If you are still unable to install it, make sure that the region/country and language is the same. Also make sure that it is available on the market (for your phone's firmware). You can also wait for the official release of WhatsApp for your phone as well.

How to set or deactivate this family room setting on my Nokia Lumia 520?

I can download anything on my Nokia Lumia 520, even WhatsApp. After my attempt to download, there is always a message that says "parent must check family room setting".

Either your parents have limited your phone options and settings through your account, or you have set your age too young (you need to be 18+ for most things). To delete the room, follow these steps:

  1. 1
    Change your age in the Microsoft Account Settings.
    Only adults can use the phone without Family Room.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    Alternatively, open the Family Room.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    Slide until you see members.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    Tap the three dots (settings).
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    Delete the member.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
