The Signal Protocol, designed by Open Whisper Systems, is the basis for WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption. This end-to-end encryption protocol is designed to prevent third parties and WhatsApp from having plaintext access to messages or calls. What’s more, even if encryption keys from a user’s device are ever physically compromised, they cannot be used to go back in time to decrypt previously transmitted messages.

We’re excited to partner with Google on the private communication features of their new smart messaging app, Allo. We’ve been collaborating together on the integration of Signal Protocol into Allo, which will bring all of Signal Protocol’s strong encryption properties to Allo’s incognito mode.
