What is end-to-end encryption?

End-to-end encryption. End-to-end encryption means that all transmitted data is encrypted via transmission stations. Only the communication partners can decrypt the messages. This means that the provider itself must not have any insight into the content in plain text. Encryption is therefore intended to prevent the data from being read or even changed by anyone other than the desired party.

How secure is end-to-end encryption?

Data transmission is not always guaranteed. Although it is guaranteed that the messages remain encrypted, the security of the encryption still depends on the protocol used. Encryption has not yet been cracked, but hackers have managed to access user data via other security gaps.


Who offers end-to-end encryption?

This now includes services such as Microsoft Teams, WhatsApp, Zoom, Telegram etc. It is therefore very relevant for communication tools, as the messages remain encrypted in transit between sender and recipient.
