This week, we go beneath the hood of WhatsApp and investigate the popular chat app’s approach to privacy and conversation security. Our experts explain which data WhatsApp does not copy, which it keeps, and what steps you can take to keep your WhatsApp conversations as secure as possible. Finally, we discuss WhatsApps future monetization strategy, and how the app’s purchase by Facebook may impact your privacy when chatting on the app.
 
In news, we discuss Uber’s recent data hack, and how other criminals stole a Mercedes by learning how to hack the car’s keyless entry. We also examine how a security researcher uncovered a set of security flaws in many popular email clients that could turn you into a spammer without your consent.
