The message is now widely circulated that the new rules will apply to WhatsApp and WhatsApp calls from tomorrow.
“If you see one blue and two red ticks – your information is checked by the government, if you see three red ticks – the government has started proceedings against you. You will get a court summons immediately.” This is a forward viral message that has been circulating on WhatsApp for the past few days. In fact, the message was spread last year as well.
The fact is that all the messages that go viral like this are fake messages. The message is now widely circulated that the new rules will apply to WhatsApp and WhatsApp calls from tomorrow. It started to spread more and more when WhatsApp approached the court against tracing the source of the messages under the new IT law of the central government.
One thing that WhatsApp users should understand is that messages on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted. None of those messages can be read by WhatsApp, Facebook, the government or anyone else.
The message, which has now been circulated several times, states, “All calls will be recorded, WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram will be monitored, and anything against the government or the Prime Minister will be shared. It is a punishable act to send political and religious messages in this situation.” You could be arrested without a warrant. ” The message also states that your phone will be “connected to the Ministry system”. But these are all factually incorrect and very wrong.
The first thing to note is that the company has not introduced any other tick on WhatsApp other than the two blue ticks. When you send a message, the first tick to indicate that the message was sent, and two ticks to indicate that the message was received there, and the blue tick is to indicate that the recipient has read the message.
All WhatsApp messages are end-to-end encrypted. This means that only the sender and recipient of the message can see it. Nothing you post on WhatsApp can be seen on Facebook, Instagram or the government. The same goes for statuses, calls, photos and videos. End-to-end encryption is protected by a special digital lock.
You can view the digital lock by going to the profile of the person you are chatting with and clicking on the encryption above their mobile number and about. If your and that person’s codes are the same, then the messages you send are end – to – end encrypted, meaning secure.
