How Can I Turn Off WhatsApp End to End Encryption

As per one of the blog post from Forbes has mentioned that Telegram was the only instant messaging app offered end to end encryption. Later WhatsApp joined the queue. A research study and report submitted by The Guardian highlighted that WhatsApp still allows snooping on encrypted messages.

What is End to End Encryption (E2EE)?

First, let us try to understand what is E2EE technology. It is a security measure where no one else can read the messages exchanged between two users. The messages send from one person will be encrypted and decrypted on the other end.

A validation check is done while decrypting on the other end. When someone tries to spy or loot the secret conversation, they will not be able to read the exact text sent or received.

    I don’t want encryption. I want it off my phone. This is as bad as Verizon forcing updates on the io systems.

      Hi Bill, I understand that you do not need encryption. The only option I learned on how to remove encryption is to download whatsapp messenger apk which is old version of WhatsApp and install it on your mobile. Do not update the whatsapp apk file. It will ensure that your messages are not encrypted.

      The only option to disable end to end encryption in WhatsApp is to download and install older version of WhatsApp and never update the app again in future.
