Your Privacy is Our Priority. Message Privately.
Our mission is to connect the world privately by designing a product that's simple and private. Whether you are sending a personal message to your friends or family, or texting with a business, your communications are secure and you are in control.
Your privacy is automatic
Conversations in end-to-end encrypted chats are clearly labeled with a gold message; these messages and calls stay between you, and no one else can read or listen to its content, not even WhatsApp.
Messages are stored on your device
Your messages belong to you. That's why your messages are stored on your phone, and we don't share them with advertisers.
You control your privacy
WhatsApp makes it simple to understand and customize your privacy and security.
Send photos and videos that disappear after a single view.
Choose whether contacts can see if you've read their messages.
Choose if only your contacts, everyone, or nobody can see when you last opened WhatsApp.
Group privacy settings
Choose whether everyone, all your contacts, or only some contacts can add you to a group chat.
We're committed to keeping you safe
WhatsApp offers a series of tools, features, and resources to help you make informed decisions and keep your communication safe and secure.
