If, until now, you were worried that your messages can be intercepted and your privacy is violated, then you will no longer need to think about that. WhatsApp has added end-to-end encryption and this technology will make sure that your messages will be secure. Download now the latest WhatsApp 2.16.15 beta and eliminate your fear that your chats and calls can be intercepted.
After you’ll download and install WhatsApp 2.16.15 Beta (27.6 MB in size) on your Android smartphone, you will notice a little yellow pop-up saying that “Messages you send to this chat and calls are now secured with end-to-end encryption”. This technology will make sure that only the sender and the recipient will have access to what’s inside the message because it will be encrypted and a specific key will be required to unscramble it. As long as the recipient will know this key, will be able to access the message and read it.
On WhatsApp’s official blog, Jan and Brian have said that “Encryption is one of the most important tools governments, companies, and individuals have to promote safety and security in the new digital age. Recently there has been a lot of discussion about encrypted services and the work of law enforcement. While we recognize the important work of law enforcement in keeping people safe, efforts to weaken encryption risk exposing people’s information to abuse from cybercriminals, hackers, and rogue states.”
WhatsApp has been using a form of end-to-end encryption for messages since the end of 2014, but now this feature has been extended for voice calls, pictures, videos and other supported files. We remind you that at the beginning of March was added support for document sharing, but only for PDFs and when the file was being shared, it was displayed a file preview of it with the number of pages, file size and type.
