What is an End-To-End encryption feature?
WhatsApp Messenger uses end-to-end encryption currently, so we can understand it well by using WhatsApp as an example. WhatsApp reports in its FAQ that ‘End-to-end encryption’ ensures the security of messages and calls between yourself and your contacts. No one else can read, hear, or see them, not even WhatsApp.
A key element of end-to-end encryption is the use of a digital lock that ensures messages are protected before they are sent, requiring a digital key that can only be accessed and heard by the recipient. Nobody can see, read, or listen to these messages in between. All of this happens automatically.
