WhatsApp beta update seeks to remind everyone why encryption is so vital
WhatsApp has released a new beta for iOS users that includes a privacy and tight encryption message, while linking to more information for those who want to know what it means to them.
The latest beta of WhatsApp modifies something that was already added in a previous one – a new line of text that reminds users that their chats are encrypted – and adds a link to a page that explains even more what it really offers the use of encryption on users and what it protects. .
WABetaInfo has all the details:
Following the update to the new WhatsApp beta update for iOS 220.127.116.11, a new footer for end-to-end encryption appears at the bottom of the status updates, the history of calls, chat list, and device list. The page that appears when you tap the footer informs people that it’s protected by end-to-end encryption: text and voice messages, audio and video calls, photos, videos and documents, sharing locations and status updates.
In particular, the page to which it is now linked is not really a new one, but an existing teller that can be found in the configuration part of the application.
Encryption is an important part of WhatsApp and is one of the reasons why it is one of the best messaging apps for iPhone. It’s not the only offering that includes encryption, of course, but its large user base and cross-platform support make it a great solution for people who need to be able to communicate with people on other platforms, such as Android. and Windows. computers.
