A strange claim is being made about WhatsApp.
WhatsApp has warned people about a fake message. It says that people’s chats are not private and the government can read them. It has also been told that if the government has read your message, then you will see a new tick or color. Right now WhatsApp chats show two-ticks. If a tick appears when a message is sent, it means the message has been sent, but the other user has not received it. Two ticks appear when the message is received and two ticks turn blue when the message is read.
At the same time, in the viral fake message on WhatsApp itself, it is being claimed that a third tick has been added to it. It says that if the government has read the message, then the third tick will appear. If the government wants to take action, then one blue tick and two red ticks will appear and the third red tick means that the user is being summoned from the court.
Let us tell you that there is a legal dispute going on between WhatsApp and the government. WhatsApp has filed a lawsuit against the new IT rules of the central government. Only after this, an attempt is being made to spread confusion among people through fake messages. However, WhatsApp users should not believe any such message, because the company has called it wrong and asked people to stay away from such messages.
WhatsApp chats between users are end-to-end encrypted. This means that no one can read this chat. No government or third party has access to this. WhatsApp has asked people not to forward any such message and report it.
