How WhatsApp, Signal & Co Threaten Privacy

In this work, our researchers and collaborators at the University of Würzburg reveal that the technical data protection of user data in the process of contact exchange of current messenger services (e.g., WhatsApp, Signal, and Telegram) does not suffice to protect the users’ data. Within our RTG, we work in subproject A.1 on methods to cryptographically protect these mass data. For more details, please see our press release.
