In these times, where it is being shown that security in mobile terminals is often conspicuous by its absence, all steps taken to increase it are welcome. And, by the looks of it, WhatsApp They have already decided to take a qualitative leap when it comes to reporting on it. We tell you what it is.

For a long time there has been speculation about the possibility that, finally, the well-known messaging application (the most widely used in the world at the moment) will make an important leap to make it clear that nothing and no one can see the conversations you have with a contact . And, the way to achieve this is by introducing new tags that will show that the end to end encryption -available in the app since 2016- when using a chat it is active. Therefore, it is equal to what many of its competitors offer… like Telegram, for example.

What exactly does this mean?

Well, without you having to do anything, before the information you send to a contact comes out, it is encrypt and, consequently, no one can intercept them to know what is in it (and this is also the case with WhatsApp itself). So, and how the receiver has the key that allows the data to be decrypted, this will be the only one that can read the text or see the image you share. A great option that has been used for a long time in the technological sectors, but it is now that the company owned by Meta seems to be taking the necessary steps to integrate when it comes to reporting the use of this option.

Applying this doesn’t restrict any of the features that exist in the app, and it doesn’t slow down delivery times either. But, so that everything runs smoothly, for the moment this new encryption reporting functionality has only been seen in the Android test version (but it will soon be available in the iOS and PC version as well): This means what is desired speed up the implementation process. Very good news!

It will not be a problem in WhatsApp

We say this because users do not notice anything about the use of end-to-end encryption, since the only thing they will detect is a new message in the lower area of ​​the screen indicating that this new function is active and, therefore, that you have to be calm when chatting with a contact. We will see how long it takes to implement this new option in WhatsApp, but with the problems derived from Pegasus, it is sure that you want to shorten the deadlines radially (so it would not be surprising if everything was available next month).
