Re: Misreading on whatsapp

WhatsApp couldn't help them not because of encryption, but because they don't even have the message any more, encrypted or otherwise.

The only thing the police had got is the ICR which says the phone connected to WhatsApp's servers. The same problem would have happened if the message were in plain text.
