Did you see an encryption prompt in your message window on WhatsApp ! What does it mean ??? Don’t worry, here is what it is about.

Ever wondered about all the text containing important and sensitive data being exchanged on WhatsApp, was it secure? Well the solution is here now from WhatsApp !

WhatsApp is a popular messenger App used for staying connected with people and sharing text, media and documents with those in contacts. WhatsApp keeps updating various features every now and then. Most of the features are very useful and hence the popularity of the App. WhatsApp now released a secure end-to-end encryption feature for sending messages and calls. How can you verify that ? Just follow the steps mentioned below.

  • Update to the latest version of WhatsApp !
  • Send a message to your contact. You will see a prompt message generated informing about the new feature. Click on it !
  • You will be prompted with details. Click on Verify! If you want to know more about the feature click on Learn More.
  • It will land you to a Verify Security Code page. You have two option – either you scan the QR code of your contact from your mobile or your contact scans the QR code on your phone.
  • Once done you will see a Green Check. It is verified. You are good to exchange your information securely now.

Even WhatsApp wouldn’t know what you are talking or texting (atleast that’s what they say !)

In Simple Terms

WhatsApp is now like exchanging mails or visiting a bank website with a lock secured web address or more so simpler like the WordPress.com you see on this browser.securewp

Glitch

What if your contact and you are not near to each other or at the same place or country ?What if you have a camera that is not efficient enough to pick the QR code ?

  • Just compare the very complicated number displayed on the Verify Screen.

      • For eg a whatsapp msg is being used by a terrorist and needs to be decoded by a security agent but this clause may go against the encryption feature right.

      • Interesting outlook !
        Well that’s the way it is, but don’t you think nothing would stop a terrorist to get their work even if the encryption was not there on WA ?

        The benefits of encrypted data on the most used messenger platform outweighs the misuse people can do.

        Technology and Invention, always comes with a dilemma that people can misuse it, but however we move ahead with precaution.

        What do you say ?
