WhatsApp has always been extremely popular, but sometimes it can be easy to minimize the impact of the messaging app since we’ve become accustomed to the application existing.
Today the chat application reached 2 billion users and shared an update emphasising on security
We are excited to share that WhatsApp now supports more than two billion users around the world.
Mothers and fathers can reach their loved ones no matter where they are. Brothers and sisters can share moments that matter. Coworkers can collaborate, and businesses can grow by easily connecting with their customers.
Private conversations that once were only possible face-to-face can now take place across great distances through instant chats and video calling.
There are so many significant and special moments that take place over WhatsApp and we are humbled and honored to reach this milestone.
We know that the more we connect, the more we have to protect. As we conduct more of our lives online, protecting our conversations is more important than ever.
Every private message sent using WhatsApp is secured with end-to-end encryption by default. Encryption acts like an unbreakable digital lock that keeps the info you send over WhatsApp secure, helping protect you from hackers and criminals.
Strong encryption is a necessity in modern life. We will not compromise on security because that would make people less safe.
For even more protection, we work with top security experts, employ industry leading technology to stop misuse as well as provide controls and ways to report issues — without sacrificing privacy.
WhatsApp started with the goal of creating a service that is simple, reliable, and private for people to use.
Today we remain as committed as when we started, to help connect the world privately and to protect the personal communication of two billion users all over the world. Learn more here: https://whatsapp.com/privacyWhatsApp
With questions being raised regarding Facebook’s approach towards user privacy, the tech giant has taken the milestone as an opportunity to remind users that they still look out for them – something in line with the recent information that Facebook decided against putting ads in WhatsApp.
