Verification: No, the government cannot read the WhatsApp conversations
The false message is circulating on Social Media reading ‘WhatsApp info regarding √ tick marks’. A viral message reads that the government can read WhatsApp chats. The message also misinforms about checkmarks/ticks on the instant-messaging application. The false share us being in circulation since last year with some addition and subtraction to it. It was then fact-checked by various fact-check organizations including Check4Spam. Check4Spam got the query about the privacy concerns on WhatsAap. Check out our earlier published FactCheck on the topic.
In fact, the Government has not done any such thing. The government cannot read any personal conversations on WhatsApp. In fact, no third parties have access to any WhatsApp chat or call. Every message and call on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted and not even the company itself can read or listen to your conversations.
What is possible on WhatsApp about ticks/read receipt is that a single tick indicates a message has been successfully sent. Double ticks indicate the message has been successfully delivered to the recipient’s phone. Two blue ticks indicate the recipient has read your message ( If in settings the ‘Read Receipts’ feature is enabled).
Go through the Whatsaap Website and know more about Privacy Policies and other queries.
