A judge in the country has decided to block 6 million Facebook accounts, since WhatsApp does not have accounts in the country, to meet again with the refusal of the company to not collaborate with the authorities of the country to provide information about talks related to drug trafficking on an international scale. WhatsApp always has asserted that not can collaborate because in their servers never stores any conversation but only is stored in the devices, but seems that that you gives equal to them authorities Brazilian.

Last April, the company began to encrypt all conversations, both text and voice, from end to end so that it is only possible to read them on the device to which they are sent.
