“Your chats and calls are end-to-end encrypted, so they always stay between you and the people and groups you choose: not even WhatsApp and their parent company, Meta, can read or listen to them,” according to the report, which also stated that the company plans to introduce two indicators in a future update to strengthen its security measures.

WhatsApp will add new markers to the Status and Calls sections (as shown in the images), claiming that your status updates, personal and group calls will always be end-to-end encrypted.

It also plans to include the same message in the Chats section, and a future version for WhatsApp for Android will include support for the same functionality.
