WhatsApp Improves Encryption

WhatsApp Improves Encryption


Fears over Facebook security kicked off the investigation about Safe Harbor, and their newly purchased company WhatsApp, has increased their encryption across the messaging platform.

The security within a company is of key importance, due to the volume of data being handled.  But it isn’t just the businesses that make security their priority, it’s now prioritised on a personal level too, as the customers who use WhatsApp, Facebook or any other messaging platform, want to be certain their data and information is being kept safe and out of the reach of hackers, or anyone that can get hold of their information.

Due to the Safe Harbor incident, WhatsApp have decided to implement end to end encryption, meaning the security is improved. The sender’s messages will be scrambled whilst being delivered and are easily decrypted once received, so the other person can read it. WhatsApp have decided to encrypt the file transfer and voice messages also, which decreases the chance of hackers being able to access messages.

The Click4Assistance chat box for website has always had encryption for the protection of data that’s transferred across chat, for example; customers’ personal information such as billing details, home addresses or telephone numbers. In fact, the live chat transmission has the same encryption level as a payment page on a website. Having data stored and processed in the UK means customer information is kept safe and secure.
