Apparently, if they buy their software from NSO-Group, they can also monitor your WhatsApp stuff.

Check out the Amnesty International case.

Codes, cyphers, invisible ink. All were around long before SMS or telephony or general postal services. They were all used by not only miscreants but also business folk, eloping lovers etc.

This perhaps is why we should always roll our own for maximum secrecy... if not security.
