WhatsApp To Refer Security Breach To U.S. Authorities
Facebook’s WhatsApp said a security breach on its messaging app had signs of coming from a private company working on surveillance.
The company said it has referred the incident to the U.S. Department of Justice.
WhatsApp, one of the most popular messaging tools, is used by 1.5 billion people monthly.
The company has touted its high level of security and privacy, with messages on its platform being encrypted end to end so that WhatsApp and third parties cannot read or listen to them.
