WhatsApp is renowned for offering a plethora of powerful features and a premium user experience. This is why more than one billion people are using the chatting app every single month and why WhatsApp’s user base keeps constantly growing. However, the plethora of powerful features is not necessarily the best thing about the chatting app. What really makes WhatsApp stand out when compared to all the other chatting apps is the high level of user privacy and security that it offers.
Considering the fact that more than one billion people are using WhatsApp in order to communicate with their friends and even share personal information such as pictures and documents, then no one should be surprised to find out that the developers of WhatsApp are putting a high price on user security. Therefore, the chatting app is updated every week with new security improvements and a brand-new update has recently arrived.
WhatsApp 2.19.183 Beta
The first thing that we want to note about WhatsApp’s latest software release is the fact that it comes in the form of beta. What this means is that the only WhatsApp users who can download the new update right now are those who have created beta accounts. Luckily, creating a beta account for WhatsApp is a fairly simple process and everyone can do it in a matter of minutes.
As previously noted, the new update for WhatsApp comes with an important security fix. The security fix is dubbed as “CVE-2019-3568” and it takes care of a major issue which made it possible for hackers to access the accounts of WhatsApp users. Fortunately, this is not going to happen again because the developers who are in charge of WhatsApp acted quickly and patched the security breach. In addition, WhatsApp’s 2.19.183 beta update also brings a handful of bug fixes that take care of various issues.
