Very interesting story. Haven't read the ProPublica original piece though.

As many in hacker community suspected WhatsApp E2E encryption bypass is built in to WA and even used openly for a moderation feature.

@kawaiipunk i mean, the article has some valid points about having to trust the policy/code of the app (same with signal!) but is structured kinda clickbaity. It makes sense to me that reporting a message sends the content to the reporting system, just like reporting a DM on here makes it viewable to moderators

@kawaiipunk remember moxie going on about how WhatsApp was actually secure?
