WhatsApp hopes to adhere to traceability norm without breaking encryption

WhatsApp is caught on the proverbial horns of dilemma. On the one hand, the Indian government wants it to help trace the source of problematic/fake forwards on the platform. But WhatsApp is loath to break its end-to-end encryption rule. In the event, the messenger platform, which is already under pressure for its privacy policy tweaks, seems now pushed to a corner.

However, its CEO Will Cathcart seems unfazed. He said that his company has explained its concerns around traceability to the Indian government and will continue doing so in the hope of finding solutions “that don’t touch encryption.”
