To reaffirm the need of encryption, WhatsApp has released a beta version of the app

Users of WhatsApp’s iOS app now have access to a new beta version, which contains a revised privacy and encryption message and links to more resources for anyone curious about the changes.

There is a new line of text that informs users that their conversations are encrypted and a link to a website explaining the benefits of using encryption and what it protects in the current beta of WhatsApp.

Details may be found at WABetaInfo:

After updating to the new WhatsApp beta for iOS update, a new footer for end-to-end encryption shows up at the bottom of your status updates, call history, chats list, and devices list. The page that shows up when tapping the footer informs people what is secured by end-to-end encryption: text and voice messages, audio and video calls, photos, videos, and documents, location sharing, and status updates.

Although this page has been added, it’s only an existing explanatory that can be accessed in the app’s settings section.

WhatsApp’s use of encryption is one of the features that makes it a standout among iPhone messaging applications. However, because of its wide user base and cross-platform compatibility, it’s a terrific option for users who want to connect securely with others using other operating systems, such as Android and Windows-based PCs.
