Whatsapp is the safest messaging app - study

Research by Amnesty International has revealed that messaging service Whatsapp is more secure than other services such as Snapchat, Telegram and Microsoft's Skype.

World Wide Worx managing director, Arthur Goldstuck, says Whatsapp prioritise security and privacy of users.

Amensty says WhatsApp is the only app where users are explicitly warned when end-to-end encryption is not applied to a particular chat.
