How reliable and safe is Whatsapp?
Let me tell you guys there should be no doubt about the privacy and data of messages which you send as they are End-to-End Encrypted. It means that no one except the sender and receiver can read your messages.
You may ask that what about the company then can it read and store our messages, the answer to your question is NO. Whatsapp can’t read and store your messages. You should not worry about this issue.
Then how all the messages are getting leaked in recent times?
I have to say this that messages are not leaked through Whatsapp but instead, they are made available through the PHONE CLONING technique.
By this, the entire device of a victim, suspect, and culprit is cloned to another blank device. The data stored as Backup in the device in i-cloud or Google drive is retrieved.
Whatsapp had already cleared that the data stored as a backup in drive or i-cloud is vulnerable as it is not end-to-end encrypted.
It had mentioned this point clearly in its terms and conditions. Anyone can access this data in various ways; I will not discuss all these ways as it will make this article too long.
Finally, I can just suggest you that don’t keep any back-up of your messages or data unless and until it’s too important for you as it is vulnerable and not secured.
To avoid it go to setting in Whatsapp and turn off the back-up option.
