Is WhatsApp really not safe?

However, the application is end-to-end encrypted. It ensures that you and the other person you’re communicating with can only read the chat nobody else, not even the WhatsApp itself. This is because your messages are in a security lock.

But after all the security promises, there are malware threats and scams that have begun to appear and are a cause for security concern. Some major issues with this application are

  • Malware Threats
  • Backup messages are not encrypted
  • Hackers can alter photos and videos easily
  • Hoaxes and fake news

Earlier in 2019 application discloses 12 vulnerabilities, out of which 7 are the most critical ones.
