“As a reminder, we’re building new ways to chat or shop with a business on WhatsApp that are entirely optional. Personal messages will always be end-to-end encrypted, so WhatsApp can’t read or listen to them,” the statement further stated.
Time and again, the messaging platform clarified that it doesn’t read users’ personal chat or share messages with third parties. To reiterate, all conversations happening on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted.
WhatsApp previously stated, “Your personal conversations are still protected by end-to-end encryption, which means no one outside of your chats, not even WhatsApp or Facebook, can read or listen to them.”
