Answering to the blog, a Twitter user said: “Encryption is not an issue. It is only that meta information like online time, last seen, etc. Which are dynamic”.
However, the website said that the reality that WhatsApp is beginning to use the Facebook servers need not worry you. “This just guarantees a good quality of the connection. All calls and chats are end-to-end encrypted. So anyone cannot read or listen calls or chats. The website tweeted “Everything is encrypted, also Stickers”. The website has asked users to wait till May “to view which information is actually stored in the WhatsApp server and if they might be a difficulty for us”.
