In 2016, WhatsApp enabled the end-to-end encryption which was greatly appreciated by many people around the world. This brings the peace of mind for people as people started to feel safe that their content being transmitted is ambiguous to everybody except the one to who the content is transferred to directly. This is exactly what the end-to-end encryption mean. This was one of the best moves by the WhatsApp as it ensures the users that their information is secured in all ways.
However Facebook has made it hard for the WhatsApp because Facebook is making money through computerized promotions but WhatsApp is not doing any such activity to make money. Koum and Acton both are the high experienced technologist and are studying to realize that merging WhatsApp in the Facebook was a famous manage to demon. However the Facebook purchased the WhatsApp for $19 billion and this much amount means many Porsches and in addition monetary autonomy for your family and relatives.
After selling WhatsApp to Facebook Acton didn’t give up and joined cryptography to make the Signal Foundation. For this Acton gifted $50 billion to make it happen. As per Acton many of the people spend their time on the internet so their information security and safety is above all. This security is not important for the selected ones but is also important for everyone in the world who uses the internet.
Offering WhatsApp to the Facebook was somehow beneficial for Acton but Koum’s Facebook flight is stressing and it seems to be hard for Koum to stay with Facebook for long. We all understand that how it feels and how it hurts when your own startup is being owned by someone else now.
Stripping out the security will give your Apps great shocks
Till the time Koum is with Facebook, it’s a good luck charm for Facebook in terms of security and protection. Facebook admits that they feel honor to have Koum’s protection decisions for the long haul.
But what if Facebook deletes the WhatsApp end-to-end encryption? It will be definitely a shock for everyone and will leave WhatsApp users in doubt for many little concerns too.
