The basic reason behind WhatsApp encryption is to make your chat secure. Your chat will not be leaked or read by any third user. The only person that can read your chat is the person or group member that you send the message to. Your message cannot be hacked or leaked by any other user. Hence, WhatsApp encryption has made your chat private and more secure.

WhatsApp uses end to end encryption in securing your chat. This feature is designed by a company named Open Whisper Systems. End to end encryption means that your chat is secured in both the channels, that is the sender and receiver. Not only chats but your WhatsApp calls are also secured.

According to the company ” Once the session is established, clients do not need to rebuild a new session with each other until the existing session state is lost through an external event such as an app reinstall or device change”. Hence, once the security details have been established between user and receiver, their chats will become private.

 

Is WhatsApp Encryption really Necessary?

It depends, whether you are a celebrity or you don’t care about your privacy. If you think that your text or Image chats can create a mess if leaked, then this feature is just for you. With recent leaks, it is better to be safe and secure. With this feature, it is clear that your chats cannot be leaked of misused by hackers.

If you think that you are safer without encryption, then you are wrong. Recently, we have seen many examples of leaks and misuse of private data. Also this feature is enabled by default hence you just need to update your messenger.
