WhatsApp Says It Would Leave UK If Government Tried To Weaken Encryption

  • Cathcart on Thursday criticized the legislation as the most concerning set of online regulations in the Western world.
  • WhatsApp’s warning follows similar threats from another encrypted messaging app, Signal, who said last month that the company “would absolutely 100 percent walk [away from the UK]”
