That’s all. This option will stop all the processes of Whats App and thus preventing it from accessing internet. Also this will work even of you restart the device. The application will still be offline so to say. Also the messages send you during this time, will be delivered to you once you go online. So no worries of losing the messages.

[alert variation=”alert-info”]Remember force stopping an application may cause some errors in the application, so you it at your own risk. I didn’t face any issues with it anytime so I think it’s of no worry.[/alert]

To start using the application again you just have to open the application and you are good to go.
