WhatsApp started with the goal of creating a service that is simple, reliable and private for people to use and today it supports more than two billion users around the world.
The platform remains as committed as when it started, to help connect the world privately and to protect the personal communication of two billion users all over the world. Mothers and fathers can reach their loved ones no matter where they are. Brothers and sisters can share moments that matter. Coworkers can collaborate, and businesses can grow by easily connecting with their customers.
Private conversations that once were only possible face-to-face can now take place across great distances through instant chats and video calling.
WhatsApp has reached this landmark as every private message sent using WhatsApp is secured with end-to-end encryption by default. Strong encryption acts like an unbreakable digital lock that keeps the information send over WhatsApp secure, helping protect users from hackers and criminals.
The company is not compromising on security because that would make people less safe. For even more protection, we work with top security experts, employ industry leading technology to stop misuse as well as provide controls and ways to report issues — without sacrificing privacy.
