Whatsapp goes private

Today saw a massive update for Whatsapp as messages became encrypted end to end.  What a turn around as last year people were predicted new laws may force us to stop using Whatsapp.

Whatsapp states

WhatsApp has always prioritized making your data and communication as secure as possible. And today, we’re proud to announce that we’ve completed a technological development that makes WhatsApp a leader in protecting your private communication: full end-to-end encryption. From now on when you and your contacts use the latest version of the app, every call you make, and every message, photo, video, file, and voice message you send, is end-to-end encrypted by default, including group chats.

The idea is simple: when you send a message, the only person who can read it is the person or group chat that you send that message to. No one can see inside that message. Not cybercriminals. Not hackers. Not oppressive regimes. Not even us. End-to-end encryption helps make communication via WhatsApp private – sort of like a face-to-face conversation.

This somewhat brings us back to the days of blackberry and the encrypted message systems they used for years.  With everything thats going on the world, Do you think this is good thing or bad thing?
