WhatsApp It has become one of the most important communication tools today. Just by having a friend’s phone number saved, you can send them messages, photos, stickers and much more content. Remember to keep your mobile device connected to the Internet so that the messages arrive.
Meta, the company behind it, keeps its application updated with new tools such as the system to log in on another device. Of course, misusing these features can expose you to hacking or someone reading your messages.
One of the ways to verify that they are not spying on your messages is to enter the “Linked devices” section. There, you will be able to log out of all the devices where you connected with your QR code.
You can also use passwords or biometric sensors to increase the security of your mobile device. Remember that WhatsApp messages are encrypted, so they can only know their content by having physical access to your cell phone.
“WhatsApp end-to-end encryption is used when you send a message to a person through WhatsApp Messenger. End-to-end encryption ensures that only you and the person you’re communicating with can read or listen to what’s sent, and no one else, not even WhatsApp, can. This happens because, thanks to end-to-end encryption, messages are secured with a padlock and only you and the recipient have the special key needed to unlock and read them. All this is automatic, without the need to activate any option in the settings or to create special secret chats to secure the messages”, details WhatsApp about the encryption of your chat data.
