What is WhatsApp backdoor Feature:
Do you ever want to make sure only your friend receives your text message? Well, WhatsApp is a popular messenger system used by people who want their messages to be encrypted; This means that the messages being sent to the recipient cannot be read until the recipient reads it, therefore it can not be intercepted by the government which gives it it’s major appeal. However, it has been found that there is a flaw to this encryption method which is known as a backdoor feature. This feature essentially could allow the government, or any interceptors to gain the messages that are being sent to the recipient without anyone knowing. This WhatsApp backdoor feature essentially contradicts the point of the application by allowing other people to see the encrypted messages. The WhatsApp backdoor risks the security of the messages being sent but it also allows the sender to be notified if the recipient has changed their number or not To make sure their messages are still being safely sent the sender can just ask the recipient in person or over the phone if they have changed their phone number or not If they have not changed their phone number the sender will know that the messages being sent through WhatsApp are being intercepted by an unknown individual or organization.
WhatsApp is the best instant messaging option available right now for any of the smartphone platform and is the most secure too, However its security has been in question since Facebook acquired it in 2014. It is a must have app for anybody from a professional to someone like you and me who likes to be in touch with friends and family 24X7. Also The app has promised to roll some cool features in the future.
