WhatsApp Will Never Be a Service in The Cloud

On occasion we have criticized here that WhatsApp has had to resort to bungling to not become, like most of its competitors, a service in the cloud. The decision to become a single messaging platform has made to that service from multiple devices cannot be used (therefore they launched WhatsApp Web but requires that the mobile phone is connected) and backup messages in Google Drive (as opposed to the automatic backup of your competitors). But it seems that there is no reverse gear.

A few weeks ago we’ve all seen how our conversations were encrypted end-to-end. This makes it impossible once and for all, that WhatsApp happens to be in the future a service in the cloud, unless they give you reverse this decision as good reviews has garnered them.

Encrypted end-to-end

Having an encryption service end-to-end means that only the receiver of messages, the mobile itself which are aimed, can have. And so everything that happens by the servers of WhatsApp is unintelligible: messages or photos or videos nor any Deputy.

This prevents for example that we can access from another device (a PC, tablet, other mobile) to our account of WhatsApp, since We would not have any way to decipher what’s there. Security, that Yes, it is maximum, but prevents future schemes of other providers of messaging services can imitate.

Is it good idea?

WhatsApp, from the outset, wanted to avoid becoming a service in the cloud. Always presumed to be a simple exchanger of messages: they only store the message until it is received, once fact this is erased from the server. With this strategy they could grow much with few resources, both human and hardware.

In their way have continued that this strategy is the right one, even now that they do not have problems of resources Since the owner is Facebook. But there have always been doubts because comfort offering messaging services operating as a service in the cloud is very large (look no further than Facebook Messenger).

But with his passage of encryption end-to-end WhatsApp also puts points on the ies: Yes, there are limitations on WhatsApp, but There is a more secure service. Indeed, end-to-end encryption is an advantage with regard to the confidentiality of communications. Useless Telegram conversations are encrypted if the server is desencriptan so that users can access from multiple devices (although, of course, are stored encrypted on the server with a key that Telegram saves in another datacenter). What’s more, we talked not only of an attack on the central server, but a court order or share data with organizations of espionage.

WhatsApp, by encrypting the communications end to end, You can not access our conversations, even if you want to. And if someone attacks WhatsApp servers, either in the form of hacker or with lawyers, they would simply deliver information encrypted with a very high level of security.

Comfort or safety?

In this case we, again, have a choice between comfort and security. Security is annoying (for example, unlock your phone with a password) and much more comfort more insecurity. And here WhatsApp has opted for greater security at the expense of closing the door of convenience by which all competitors are committed and which they refused without a very convincing explanation. However they now have a.
