standard Whatsapp Adds End-to-End Chat Encryption


Whatsapp has just announced that they’ve added secure end to end encryption to their messaging platform (activated by default). Whatsapp teamed up with Open Whisper Systems, using their TextSecure protocol. The  addition of message encryption is a huge boost for the messaging platform, as users have looked elsewhere for more secure messaging options, such as Telegram.

Currently Whaatsapp are starting by rolling out the encryption to their Android client, hopefully Windows Phone and iOS won’t be far behind.
