Your private and secure personal messaging
>> Facebook and WhatsApp can neither see your private messages nor listen to calls: Users can send WhatsApp messages to their friends, family and workmates on WhatsApp or talk on the call, neither can see / hear WhatsApp nor Facebook.
WhatsApp says that what users share with their loved ones remains between you, because your personal messages are protected by end-to-end encryption. WhatsApp says that WhatsApp will never allow this security to weaken. WhatsApp attaches great importance to encryption, so users will see that each chat is labeled with encryption.
>> Who does not keep a record of who is sending messages or calling? It used to be earlier that mobile companies and operators used to store this information, but this is not possible for WhatsApp. WhatsApp believes that keeping a record of two billion (two hundred million) users could threaten both privacy and security, so WhatsApp does not do so.
>> Facebook and we can’t see your shared location: When users share their location on WhatsApp, your location is protected by end-to-end encryption. This means that no one can see your location other than you and with whom you have shared.
>> Whatsapp does not share your contact list with Facebook: Only after the user’s permission, WhatsApp only access the phone number from your phone’s address book, so that you can easily communicate with your contacts. WhatsApp does not share your information with other Facebook apps.
>> WhatsApp Groups Pvt. Are: WhatsApp uses group memberships to deliver messages and protect their service from spam. WhatsApp does not share these data with Facebook. Note that these private chats are encrypted end-to-end, so we do not know what is happening in them.
>> You can use the ‘vanishing message’ mode automatically: For more security, you can choose whether a message sent or received disappears after 7 days. You can download your data: By downloading from the user app itself, you can see what information your account has with WhatsApp.
