This message refers to the new end-to-end encryption service that is being used in the newest version of the popular messaging service.

Simply put: From now on, your messages are only sent and readable between you and your messaging partner. No more intelligence agencies, no more hackers, not even WhatsApp and their Facebook owners. Over the past six months, the development team over at WhatsApp had been developing this new security feature.

So not only will your messages be protected from spying eyes, but also all your photos, videos, voice messages and calls.
