Lately we talked a lot about the decision of WhatsApp to roll out end-to-end encryption for all its users. This action of the Facebook-owned app obviously created a large debate, where some companies strongly agree with this action and some others (especially some governments) don’t.
Today, last news report that Viber, another successfull instant messaging app as well as one of the major competitor of WhatsApp, has decided to add end-to-end encryption as well. With this option the company won’t be allowed to access any of its users messages, and, obviously, neither will be government agencies. A spokesperson of the company stated that this new update will be available to users worldwide in “several weeks“.
