WhatsApp, Database


This paper seems to explore the safety and security of our WhatsApp, with over 1.4 Billon people using WhatsApp to stay connected with each other, we try to look at how secure WhatsApp really is along with how you can take some extra steps to ensure the safety of your data. WhatsApp stores conversations of the user in database files as a backup in the internal storage of the mobile device. Security experts at WhatsApp implemented AES, using which the stored backup files prevented or restricted unauthorized access. Using the results discussed in this paper, any person will be able to reconstruct the list of contacts and the chronology of the messages that have been exchanged by users. Furthermore, thanks to the multiple research papers, studies and forum that helped me complete this.
