So in 2016, WhatsApp and Open Whisper Systems announced that WhatsApp would be using the Signal protocol to protect all chats, group chats, attachments, and so on and so forth. While there were some initial concerns about the implementation, I think it was largely welcomed as a positive move, improving the security and privacy of over a billion active users.
I pretty much disappeared from here after 2015 for a variety of personal reasons. I got really busy with college and projects, and for a while, all my writing was for TechAeris. Anyway, I wanted a way to document certain things going on in my life right now, and so I decided to archive all my old posts and start afresh here.
