WhatsApp End-To-End Encription Now Appearing For Users Everywehere
Encryption is one of the most important tools governments, companies, and individuals have to promote safety and security in the new digital age. But its easier said than done. Privacy is very important when it comes to online security.WhatsAppseems to be one of the most secured chatting platforms.WhatsApphave been working so hard in improving its services.WhatsAppis set to roll out end-to-end encryption to all users.
With end-to-end encryption, WhatsApp asserts that only you and the people involved in your conversations can read your messages. No one, not even WhatsApp, can access them in route. Each message you send is secured with its own lock, with only you and your recipients having the key necessary to unlock. WhatsAppthen claims to delete messages from its servers after they’ve been delivered.
According to WhatsApp,“From now on when you and your contacts use the latest version of the app, every call you make, and every message, photo, video, file, and voice message you send, is end-to-end encrypted by default, including group chats.
The idea is simple: when you send a message, the only person who can read it is the person or group chat that you send that message to. No one can see inside that message. Not cybercriminals. Not hackers. Not oppressive regimes. Not even us. End-to-end encryption helps make communication via WhatsApp private – sort of like a face-to-face conversation.”
This feature comes as the result of a server-side change, so no new update is required. You don’t even need a friend online to try things out. Messages sent to yourself are apparently also secured. So go ahead, talk to yourself, nobody will penalize you.
I don’t know if this update will be available for Blackberry 10, Windows phone 7 and Symbian users since WhatApphad announced that they’llremove supports for these devices…Android OS is the way forward!
