WhatsApp says it would rather face a UK ban than weaken its security

Popular messaging app WhatsApp has said it would take the prohibition of its service in the UK over compliance with the government’s proposed Online Safety Bill.

It believes the bill, if enforced, would weaken the privacy of its service for users by undermining its end-to-end encryption, which ensures that no one other than the sender and receiver of messages on the platform is able to view their contents.
