Facebook-owned WhatsApp has announced that it has crossed 2 billion followers globally.

In a blog published on its website, WhatsApp said that protecting the conversations of its users online was its top priority. “That is why 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 you send over WhatsApp secure, helping protect you from hackers and criminals. Messages are only kept on your phone, and no one in between can read your messages or listen to your calls, not even us. Your private conversations stay between you,” the post read.

It further said that strong encryption was a necessity in modern life and that it will not compromise 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,” the blog said.

The statement further added, “WhatsApp started with the goal of creating a service that is simple, reliable, and private for people to use. Today we remain as committed as when we started, to help connect the world privately and to protect the personal communication of two billion users all over the world.”
