Yes I know but not really something an average consumer has access to or can afford. I think whatsapp will have encrypted calls built in for all users.

IMO, encryption is not the big issue with WhatsApp. By far the biggest issue with WhatsApp is that it uses your phone number as a user ID, and then shows that phone number to others without your permission or your knowledge, as well as the data mining that leads to it. And you don't have to use WhatsApp to criticize that. :-)

Seriously, to those who have called out UTB and I for criticizing WhatsApp without ever using it, you should keep in mind that using it would only enlighten us on the feel, usability and user-friendliness of the app and service, which are not the things we're criticizing. We're criticizing WhatsApps security, privacy and missing features, which are not affected by experience using the app and service. So there.  Tounge

Excellent point Bartron!

Nailed it. I don't want to experience any of those options if it means anyone that ever had me on Facebook in the past now has my status updates and phone number. Screw that. Lol
