My 10 000th comment about this kind of discussion is always the same: js
apps inside browsers (or to a certain extent nodejs, ff os), which
surprisingly seem to be systematically disconsidered, can solve the
application layer issue and related countries specific
laws/restrictions, because you cannot hide anything, assuming that you
got the right code, which you can check from different third parties.
If Whatsapp was a js app, then it would be easy to see what it is doing,
and the XXXMM of users would have been updated already.
If Whatsapp was a js app, then you would not need to rely on a specific
package according to your device.
But you still need to trust: the browsers, the OS, the hw... which is
quite a lot...
