One of the best things about WhatsApp is the level of security that users benefit from. The developers of WhatsApp have made it loud and clear right from the day that the chatting app was launched that their top priority is to provide users with a safe and private chatting experience. No one has to worry about their contacts or chat history leaking out from WhatsApp and this is why the app is used by more than one billion people every single month.
Although, we have to mention that WhatsApp is not flawless. Despite being a premium app, some issues still manage to appear every now and then with the latest one being quite serious. Multiple reports have shown that a security breach has been discovered in WhatsApp’s software and that “bad actors” could exploit the security breach in order to access the private data of users. Luckily, the developers of WhatsApp moved fast and fixed this security breach issue as soon as they found out about it.
