Whatsapp chats are currently end-to-end encrypted by default. The report says that if you turn on "Secret Conversation", then Facebook Messenger provides the facility. "Instagram currently does not offer end-to-end encryption for its chat."

"I see that the big problem is only the default end-to-end encryption of WhatsApp. So what if the goal is to allow cross-app traffic, and it does not need to be encrypted? Here's a whole series of results, "said Matthew Green, a cryptographer at Johns Hopkins University.

Whatsapp's co-founder and chief executive officer, John Quem, left the opinion on Facebook with CEO Mark Zuckerberg when it came to data privacy and encryption. Following Facebook's efforts to popular message service and to use its personal data and to weaken its encryption, Koum announced the exit after the collision with his parents, Facebook.

Brian Acton started Whatsapp with Koum. Facebook acquired the messaging service for $ 19 billion in 2014. Acton left Facebook in 2017 and the comedy left the company in April last. The New York Times said on Friday that Facebook has planned to integrate Chat within Whatsapp, Messenger, and Instagram.

"Wired's report says that Facebook is still taking its messaging platforms to the early stage of the homogenizing platform, a step that can increase the number of easy and safe chat."
