WhatsApp makes messaging more secure

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 - 00:00

The world’s most popular messaging app just took a major stand against the probing eyes of law enforcement and hackers alike.

WhatsApp, the texting app owned by Facebook, enabled end-to-end encryption for all of its users Tuesday, essentially meaning that messages sent via the app cannot be intercepted or viewed by anyone other than the intended recipient. 

The company will not have the technical capability to turn your communications over to law enforcement.

“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,” WhatsApp said in a blog post Tuesday. “No one can see inside that message. Not cybercriminals. Not hackers. Not oppressive regimes. Not even us.”
