3 Messengers now with End-to-end Encryption

Whatsapp News: If you have not read, Whatsapp has recently added end-to-end encryption for all of its one billion users, which stops companies from accessing your messages when it reaches their services or when it reaches your phone, where the messages as well as media (images/videos/audio) are only decrypted when it reaches the apps from both ends (end-to-end encryption).

Apple implemented this into their messenger service back in 2013, where they stated:

“For example, conversations which take place over iMessage and FaceTime are protected by end-to-end encryption so no one but the sender and receiver can see or read them. Apple cannot decrypt that data.”

Although there were and still are doubts about its legitimacy, seeing as  earlier this year the FBI requested for access to private information, they publicly announced they did not allow access. Which some bright people see as a deal being struck between the FBI and Apple to allow access, but make Apple still seem strong (allowing both companies to benefit).

Now it is Viber (owned by Rakuten, which is a large Japanese e-commerce) adding end-to-end encryption to their 700 million users, allowing for messages and media to be encrypted for both individual chats as well as group chats, users with the current version of the app will be able to use this service when it does roll out within the next two weeks.
