WhatsApp offers lots of great features that make it easier for people to communicate with their friends and family members. However, this is not necessarily what makes WhatsApp stand out the most when compared to apps that offer similar services. The best thing about WhatsApp is its high level of user security. People can text via WhatsApp without ever having to worry about their conversation history being leaked and this is why WhatsApp is used by more than one billion every single month.
The developers who are in charge of WhatsApp are putting a high price on the user security of their app and this is why they are updating it almost every single day. The constant stream of updates that WhatsApp benefits from enhances its software stability though bug fixes and also takes the user security to the next level. Therefore, today we are going to cover the latest update for WhatsApp and present everything there is to know about it.
WhatsApp 2.19.150 Update
WhatsApp fans should be pleased to know that a brand-new update has started rolling out today. The update sports the 2.19.150 version number and as previously mentioned, it focuses on enhancing the user security of the app. The way that the new update does this is by introducing a new security patch known as “CVE-2019-3568”.
While the new 2.19.150 release might be a maintenance update, we are still advising all WhatsApp users to download it as soon as possible. The reason behind this is that the “CVE-2019-3568” security patch takes care of a major issue which made it possible for “bad actors” to get access to private user data. Therefore, the new update for WhatsApp is making sure that “bad actors” and other types of malicious software can’t get bypass WhatsApp’s security.
