Just today, Facebook owned WhatsApp has now passed the two billion user mark, something Facebook only achieved in 2017.
“We are excited to share that, as of today, WhatsApp supports more than two billion users around the world.”
Also in the blog post, the company touts its encryption efforts as WhatsApp has end-to-end encryption.
“Strong encryption is a necessity in modern life. We will not compromise on security because that would make people less safe. For even more protection, we work with top security experts, employ industry leading technology to stop misuse as well as provide controls and ways to report issues — without sacrificing privacy.”
