One of the things that make WhatsApp stand out from all the other chatting apps is the high price that the developers of WhatsApp are putting on user privacy. Millions of people from all over the world are using WhatsApp every day in order to communicate with their friends and the developers of WhatsApp want to make sure that no third-party entity is able to intercept those conversations or the media files that are being shared via WhatsApp. This is why the chatting app is updated with software tweaks, bug fixes and security improvements every day.
WhatsApp 2.19.190 Beta Update
The best thing that WhatsApp users can do in order to access all of the app’s latest updates is to enroll in the beta program. Creating a beta account for WhatsApp is fairly simple and anyone who uses an Android powered device can do it in a couple of minutes. With that being said, we are glad to announce that WhatsApp has just received a new beta update.
The latest update for WhatsApp sports the 2.19.190 beta build number and it is being rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels to all beta users right now. This is why we are advising WhatsApp fans who are enrolled in the beta program to keep their smartphones connected to a stable Wi-Fi network for today.
New Security Fix
As previously noted, the developers of WhatsApp put a high price on the user security of the chatting app. This is why it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone to find that that the new update which sports the 2.19.190 beta build number comes with a brand-new security fix. The fix is being dubbed as “CVE-2019-3568” and it takes care of a high-priority security exploit which made it possible for hackers to hijack WhatsApp accounts.
