WhatsApp’s Encryption

With Apple Inc. going gaga over the user-privacy, WhatsApp have joined the cause with their latest encryption wagon. This encryption feature introduced by WhatsApp is based on the end-to-end encryption messages, which are scrambled after they leave sender’s device and they can only be decrypted by the recipient’s device. If any third party tries to intercept the messages, they become unreadable.

This new feature given by WhatsApp allows users to encrypt not just text message but photos, videos, calls, voice messages and everything else as well. This feature setting is enabled by default so users read the message every time they are about to send anything to anybody.

This new feature has created a circle of doubts amongst various schools of thought globally. According to most of the people, with millions of encrypted messages sent across the world, there are higher chances of mishaps and terrorism. On the contrary, people are appreciating this feature by calling it another move to secure individual privacy when it comes to electronic gadgets.

It is obviously clear that in countries like Pakistan and others, no matter what the IT policy, Cyber Bills or Encryption laws say, the government has no control over encrypting WhatsApp messages. The only solution can be doing the same with WhatsApp, which was done with YouTube in the past but that would also not help because how far can anybody go in banning Apps. This makes WhatsApp’s encryption policy applicable to all the users in Pakistan or in the world.
