Re: Misreading on whatsapp

Exactly where did anyone say that WHO it was sent to was inaccessible?

That was my point, people here and elsewhere are saying that WhatsApp would not tell the police the message metadata (i.e. who, when) but in fact all that was actually said was "British security sources last month revealed Masood sent a WhatsApp message but it could not be accessed because it was encrypted by the popular messaging service". I.e. the result of end-to-end encryption.

Please read the original AC post where they said "they refused to reveal who the London attacker had been WhatsApp-ing" and my own again, and then come back with any reading comprehension issues.
