We are going through difficult times with Coronavirus confinement, in which it is not easy to be in contact with ours. For this reason, now, more than ever, we are using technology, both to work and to be informed, but above all to communicate with our loved ones. Billions of people trust WhatsApp and do not hesitate to use it to communicate daily during this confinement. And not only to talk to yours, but also to contact your doctor, teachers, etc.
WhatsApp is aware that it is now more important than ever to be safe, so it offers us a space where our messages and calls will be end to end encryption by default.
Last year the functionality that showed us the forwarded messages many times appeared: the double arrow. Now they are setting a limit so that these messages can be sent to only one chat at a time.
WhatsApp has always been aware of the privacy and security of its users since it is a private messaging service. Therefore, it established some time ago, a limit when forwarding messages to restrict viralization, causing forwarded messages to decrease by 25% worldwide.
However, they also know that not all forwarded messages are fakes or information that shouldn’t go viral. They are aware that there is a lot of useful information such as organizing public moments during all this chaos, as well as fun information to get us a smile and important reflections. However, they consider it important to slow down disclosure so that messages that are not of this type do not make WhatsApp a space for a purpose other than having personal conversations.
It is also important to know that WhatsApp works directly with NGOs and government institutions, such as the World Health Organization and more than 20 national ministries of health, with the aim that everyone can access the correct information. These trusted authorities have already sent hundreds of millions of direct messages to people who have requested some type of information and advice on the subject. If you want to know more, you can go to the WhatsApp coronavirus information center.

It is important for everyone to have their information controlled, but much more when it comes to your business.
