WhatsApp security and reliability

After Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014 the app moved to end-to-end encryption for better security, this way the messages can be immune to the man in the middle attacks, because messages are only de-encrypted by the receiver. The app also allows for larger control of your privacy, where you can control if others can see your last seen, block users and delete sent messages.

As for reliability, we can safely say that WhatsApp is reliable since reports of the service being down are rare.
