There is finally an app for WhatsApp which you can install on Windows computer. The app can now be downloaded to the Windows desktop and from what we have come to learn from our extensive use, WhatsApp on the desktop works pretty well, or I can even say, it’s excellent.
When it comes down to sending and receiving messages, there’s not much difference when compared to WhosDown or other third-party services. End-to-end encryption is supported in the latest update as well. But if in any case you see that the encryption isn’t used then it’s perhaps that your friend did not updated the application on their end just yet.
Once all parties in a group, or the person you’re messaging in an individual chat, have updated to the latest version of WhatsApp, a small indicator will appear in the chat informing you that the messages in your chat are end-to-end encrypted.
WhatsApp recently introduced End-to-end encryption.
End-to-end encryption is available when you and the people you message are on the latest versions of WhatsApp. WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption ensures only you and the person you’re communicating with can read what is sent, and nobody in between, not even WhatsApp. Your messages are secured with a lock, and only the recipient and you have the special key needed to unlock and read your message. For added protection, every message you send has a unique lock and key. All of this happens automatically: no need to turn on settings or set up special secret chats to secure your messages.
Important: End-to-end encryption is always activated, provided all parties are using the latest version of WhatsApp. There is no way to turn off end-to-end encryption.
Just download the app from the link here, then install.
