WhatsApp Dark Mode: What it is and when it is launching
By: FE Online | Updated: December 4, 2018 5:40 PM


2018 has been the year when tech companies including bigwigs such as Google and Apple stressed how important it is to cut down some time from smartphones. Soon after Facebook began rolling out the feature that lets users check how much time they spend on its app and Instagram. The idea is to make sure people make the use of technology while also taking their health into consideration.
Another feature that is highly demanded by many users is Dark Mode, which gives users a more comfortable experience while browsing a website or an app in the dark so that eyes don’t get stressed.
WhatsApp, the most popular chat app in the world owned by Facebook, was long rumoured to be working on a dark mode for its app on iOS and Android. However, according to WABetaInfo, the dark mode on WhatsApp is still in the making, which means that the company would take some extra time to roll it out.

In a tweet, WABetaInfo said: “It’s still under development and there is no news now.” WhatsApp has not officially said anything on whether the dark mode is being developed for the users. In any case, WABetaInfo will be the first to report any further developments, going by its record for tracking WhatsApp-related news.
Facebook is already pushing out tools that aim to improve the digital health of users by letting them check the time they spend on the apps. Last month, the company rolled out ‘Your Time on Facebook’ tool to allow users to keep a check on the time, in addition to set daily limits. Instagram also shows the time users spend on the app.
WhatsApp recently rolled out new features such as new interface and method to initiate group calls. This update came after the Facebook-owned app launched Stickers on its platform. The WhatsApp Stickers became very popular within a short time, so much so that the Google Play store was overloaded with the Sticker apps. Meanwhile, Apple removed several Sticker apps on the basis of policy violation.

How Indian agencies hacked into a Pakistani terrorist’s WhatsApp to track him down

nationalheraldindia.com

Jan 7, 2019 9:00 PM

The instance was one of the first times that Indian experts managed to find a way around WhatsApp secrecy safeguards

[http://img2]

Indian intelligence agencies hacked into a terrorist's WhatsApp account and tracked him down to a location in southern part of Jammu and Kashmir, in a covert arrest operation that took place in the last week of September last year.

The suspect, hailing from Pakistan and in hiding, happened to be an engineer and was "smart with the use of technology," say sources in the know.

He understood that opening messages from unknown numbers could compromise his location, they say.

He was lured into opening of a visual, concocted message "carrying the name of the Pakistan High Commission."

The bait worked and he was tracked down from his IP coordinates and eventually arrested.

It is understood that there is a "gap of 6-7 seconds" between when the message is sent out and it reaches a storage "cloud." From the storage cloud, the information goes into the server of the California-based company.

It is next to impossible now to hack into American systems. So, the it is within that time-frame of six-seven seconds that one could track the location from the internet signals being sent out, say sources.

During the operation that culminated in his arrest, a method, called "masking" in hacking terminology, was specifically employed. Masking involves focussing on signals within close proximity of the receiver, say sources.

The instance was one of the first times that Indian experts managed to find a way around WhatsApp secrecy safeguards, a safety feature that has helped propel the popular messaging app to reach a user base of over 200 million in the Indian market.

The American messaging app claims to be a fool-proof messaging platform. According to the end-to-end cryption, "only you and the person you're communicating with can read what's sent, and nobody in between, not even WhatsApp.

"Your messages are secured with locks, and only the recipient and you have the special keys needed to unlock and read your messages," the company's website says.

However, several reports from different parts of the world in previous months have indicated that there might be ways to hack into a WhatsApp account.

In October 2018, Israeli media had reported that the country had been witnessing a series of attacks on its WhatsApp accounts, prompting the authorities there to declare a national alert.

The hacking method involved "a relatively new method of hijacking WhatsApp accounts using mobile providers' voicemail systems."
