The instant messaging giant WhatsApp has introduced a new end-to-end encryption security feature, safeguarding all your messages and calls with a robust 256-bit encryption code. This means that only you and your intended recipient can access the content of your messages. WhatsApp servers, cybercriminals, hackers, and law enforcement agencies are unable to see or listen to the transmitted data. This outstanding security feature operates at the highest level, ensuring the utmost privacy protection.
In cases where your friend changes their mobile number or reinstalls the WhatsApp instant messenger, you will receive a notification message in the chat or group window. For example, “Friend’s Name” security code changed. Tap for more info. These messages serve as reminders to ensure that both you and your friends are using the latest version of WhatsApp. The end-to-end security is effective only when both parties are using the latest version of the app. Therefore, these notifications contribute significantly to enhancing your security. If you wish to receive such notification messages, you can enable them in the Security Settings.
