Don’t Panic! WhatsApp is All Encrypted
San Francisco: WhatsApp says it’s now using a powerful form of encryption to protect the security of photos, videos, group chats and voice calls in addition to the text messages. WhatsApp began applying “end-to-end” encryption to standard messages sent on Android smartphones in 2014. After gradually expanding to other formats, WhatsApp confirmed that its encryption now works with all forms of communication on its app.
