The majority of the 1 billion monthly whatsapp users may be a little confused about the tiny yellow info-box in their familiar chat. End-to-end encryption? Is this one of these silly annoying whatsapp-viruses or maybe something good?
The first big question is “why”. Why do we need a (so complicated) whatsapp end-to-end encryption? The most important answer is obvious: cause the sent messages are highly personal and worthy to protect against third-party attackers or facebook/ whatsapp itself. From facebook’s point of view there are some more reasons like pressure caused by competitors or loss of trust by the users.
