Users Of WhatsApp To Get 'End-To-End Encrypted' Labels

(CTN News) – Hacking malware has gained scepticism among users, but WhatsApp is introducing a new feature called “end-to-end encrypted” to reassure users that their data is safe.

It provides users with a visual reminder of the security status of their ongoing chats by giving a visual confirmation that the messages exchanged in that specific chat are protected by end-to-end encryption and therefore secure from prying eyes. This option will enhance users’ understanding of the security status of their ongoing chats.

According to WhatsApp WABetaInfo,

It has been reported recently that the feature simply encrypts the contact’s name and the group’s name within the conversation, and adds an encryption label next to them.

For now, the option is only available to a select group of beta testers on the TestFlight app on iOS 24.1.10.73 via the most recent WhatsApp beta for that platform.

The idea is that it might appear momentarily in the chat caption, offering a visual confirmation of secure communication, but will disappear a few seconds later in order to be replaced by the “last seen” information in its place.

We are providing this information with the intention of teaching the users about WhatsApp’s strict security policies as well as giving them a quick and simple way to identify which conversations are private as well.

This new feature is available on WhatsApp today to ensure users are able to understand that the content of their conversations is always private and secure, as the encryption status is clearly visible in the conversation. It is truly WhatsApp’s proactive approach to ensuring that users understand the content of their conversations is always private and secure.
