The  WhatsApp messages that you send are said to be end to end encrypted what does that mean? broadly encryption means converting any information into a secret code which cannot be deciphered when read literally. That is writing in a secret language to encrypt it. End to end encryption means that if you send a WhatsApp message to your friend then no one apart from you and your friend can and read the message. Obviously as long as you have showed your phone to third party e aur version if you keep your phone with yourself and show it to no one else. then no one apart from you both can read the message.for comparison SMS is not end to end encrypted when you send an SMS from one phone to another it goes through Telecom operator. Telecom like Airtel and jio can access your message if they so wish to.in fact even if the government wants it is possible for it to access and understand who wrote, what and when. Like that another example Gmail was also not end to end encrypted.
