WhatsApp is a chatting app used by most people. WhatsApp is used by people from all walks of society, including politicians, activists and filmmakers, to chat. Meanwhile, WhatsApp groups have become a major concern of authorities. Because WhatsApp messages are able to induce mob attacks.
With the implementation of WhatsApp, End-to-End encryption is a big headache for police to track messages. However, the reality is that this encryption cannot protect you completely. Because WhatsApp keeps track of all the messages you send.
If so, ask the police or other authorities to provide. The messages are encrypted, but the police can get information, including your name, IP address, mobile number, location, mobile network, and mobile phone.
Also, who are you chatting with. Police know how long and how long they have been chatting. The police can also be prosecuted under the Information Technology Act 2000. If you do certain things on WhatsApp, it could even lead you to jail.
