This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


1) Would say "NO" if they really implemented full end to end encryption..

2) Man in the middle attack scenario still exists

3) I really doubt the end to end encryption for images and videos or files,,. Considering below cases a) sending group messages b) getting content after a while even if the sender deleted the original files..

  • This doesn't answer the question, and is incorrect anyway. First thing that comes up on google is this whitepaper that explains how images and other files are encrypted. – AndrolGenhald Oct 12 '17 at 19:05
