Too Long; Didn't Read

A new report by ProPublica claims WhatsApp messages are not end-to-end encrypted. Facebook inspects the content of messages on the platform. WhatsApp’s encryption might not be as secure as the popups on the screen that may influence you to trust. The report also says that all of these practices are described in the users’ privacy policy, but you have to dig deep to find them. The author was asking users to switch to WhatsApp, but it's hard to encourage WhatsApp users to quit.
