37% rural youth sans Internet access: Study
WhatsApp earlier this week turned on end-to-end encryption for its services. This means all of its features including group messages, voice calls and personal messages are encrypted and cannot be accessed by anyone else, including WhatsApp itself, other than the sender and receiver. Even though the feature ensures users’ privacy, it may land into legal troubles in India. WhatsApp has enabled a 256-bit encryption whereas Indian law only permits up to 40-bit permission for the private parties.
