After looking at all the reasons why the whole world needs stronger network security, it is quite fascinating to find out WhatsApp privacy has been improved lately.
All your text messages and calls that you have carried out; from now on will undergo better encryption from all aspects, according to Mashable.
In order to enjoy this latest full data encryption, all you need to do is download its latest update. This brand new feature also functions perfectly on Windows phone and Blackberry.
The users will automatically receive a notification as soon as the messages they have exchanged so far all get secured. For assurance, look for the “lock” icon that shows in the chat’s preferences portion.
WhatsApp is currently working side by side with Open Whisper Systems that mainly specializes in securing messages. Furthermore, it has future plans to secure data of other social networking apps used by us for communication.
Even though data security has been strictly practiced since last year, the concept has become extremely vital for all the companies and startups of the Silicon Valley lately.
According to one of the highly esteemed and successful CEOs of the Silicon Valley named Jan Koum, who also assisted Apple for standing against the FBI, said:
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 cyber criminals, hackers, and rogue states.
Facebook, on the other hand, is also trying to strengthen its data encryption in Messenger. Moreover, Google and Snapchat are also stepping up in this game for a secured way of exchanging messages on their respective platforms.
All these social networking companies have started to consider this a great deal, ever since the fight between Apple and FBI has drastically erupted over this matter.
