Fouad WhatsApp 8.86: The King of Modifications

Fouad WhatsApp is without a doubt the best WhatsApp MOD at the moment, as of today 99% of MODs are based on it, so if we have to think about the real successor to WA PLUS, it is undoubtedly this modification, which update after update proves to be the best of all.

It owes its peculiar name to its developer, Fouad Mokdad, that’s why this modification of WhatsApp is also known as FMWhatsApp, name that inherits one of its installation packages. An application that was born from YoWhatsApp, and today has been able to surpass it.
