[liberationtech] Whatsapp + textsecure?

Hi Brian,

I can only encourage you to read the announcement of the partnership: https://whispersystems.org/blog/whatsapp/ <https://whispersystems.org/blog/whatsapp/>

As stated in the post:

> Your messages may already be encrypted

Messages are opportunistically encrypted (if both receiving and sending client support it).

> We’ll also be surfacing options for key verification in clients as the protocol integrations are completed.

A partnership was announced, not a full deployment.

Best,
