WhatsApp will be able to read your messages when a user...

Whatsapp will change its abuse reporting policy and will soon be able to read your messages when another user accuses you of inappropriate behavior. The application offers an option to denounce any form of abuse and wishes to go further in order to strengthen the security of users, even if this should weaken their confidentiality.


WhatsApp is a closed application in the sense that the profiles are less open than on , Twitter or Instagram. However, users are not immune to spam, harassment, insults and other inappropriate behavior. To clean up and eliminate toxic accounts, the application is based on a reporting system.

So far, when reporting a profile, WhatsApp offers a button to delete the chat and block the reported profile. But things are about to change. In the latest beta of the messaging app, the most recent messages from the chat are routinely transferred to WhatsApp’s servers for verification.

Objective: improve the WhatsApp reporting system

To ban a phone number, WhatsApp relied on several criteria without accessing messages. The application is based in particular on the number of reports of the same number by different accounts, the user’s seniority, etc. To improve the system and filter profiles more efficiently, moderators will soon be able to access recent posts to verify the credibility or not of the report.

In the last beta of WhatsApp, when trying to report a profile, the window displays this warning: « this user’s most recent messages will be forwarded to WhatsApp ». Some gray areas remain to be clarified since the application does not specify until when the messages considered as recent can go up, nor their number if it is rather the numerical criterion which is considered. It also seems that the messages transferred concern only those of the reported user, even if there is still some doubt.

One thing is certain, WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption is not all risk insurance against intrusions. Some messages can still be read by the moderators of the platform. Finally, this new reporting policy also concerns the reporting of groups. The change is visible for the hour only in the latest beta of WhatsApp on Android ( It should not be long before it arrives in the consumer version.

As a reminder, more and more features are coming to the messaging application. WhatsApp now makes it possible to free up storage space more efficiently by deleting unnecessary and large files. The ephemeral messages announced for several months have finally been made official, a sign of the imminent arrival of the feature. And many more are expected to arrive in the coming months.
