End-to-end encryption ensures that any hackers or third party’s attempting to intercept your messages does not succeed. No one will be able to access or steal your sensitive information. This is because the lockbox containing the chats in transit can only be opened by the sender and the recipient using special encryption keys. This makes it impossible for anyone else to snoop through your messages. Therefore, with end-to-end encryption, your messages are encrypted from start to finish. With this in place, it provides complete privacy and security for your conversations.
