WhatsApp Now with End-to-End Encryption Protection
We live in a world where more of our data is digitized than ever before. Every day we see stories about sensitive records being improperly accessed or stolen. And if nothing is done, more of people’s digital information and communication will be vulnerable to attack in the years to come. Fortunately, end-to-end encryption protects us from these vulnerabilities.Recently we have discussed about in Encrypted Mail in our post – Encrypted Mail and Websites which offers Encrypted E-Mail service . And i am feeling very happy that now WhatsApp is also using End-to-End Encryption.On 5 th April Whatsapp team announced that they have completed a technological development that makes WhatsApp most protected and private communication: full end-to-end encryption. Everyone know that WhatsApp has always prioritized making our data and communication
as secure as possible.“From
now 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
End-to-end encryption helps make communication via WhatsApp private – sort of like a face-to-face conversation.If you’re interested in learning more about how end-to-end encryption works, you can read about it in below paragraph But all you need to know is that end-to-end encrypted messages can only be read by the recipients(receiver) you intend. And if you’re using the latest version of WhatsApp, you don’t have to do a thing to encrypt your messages: end-to-end encryption is on by default and all the time.
So lets talk about End-to-end encryption
read it is the person or group chat that you send that message to. No
one can see inside that message. Not cyber criminals. Not hackers. Not
oppressive regimes. Not even the Whatsapp team as announced.
All messages which are encrypted by End-to-End are 256 bit coded and can’t be cracked by Hackers brute Force method .But some times due to loop holes it can be hacked by gray hat hackers.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(Apple and FBI).Today more than a billion people are using WhatsApp to stay in touch
with their friends and family all over the world. And now, every single
one of those people can talk freely and securely on WhatsApp.There are also some drawback of this brave step taken by Whatsapp like-It is also protective for the criminals and not very good for the national security but we hope that these issues can be solved in near future.
