WhatsApp, the massively popular communications application, has announced that it has crossed 2 billion active users of its service globally. Previous estimates had expected WhatsApp to cross the figure of 2 billion monthly active users of its service in April 2020, a target that the Facebook owned service appears to have met comfortably. In line with the milestone, WhatsApp has published a post on its official blog, stating that it will continue with its focus on privacy and end to end encryption, which will also hopefully mature into efforts to curb spam and fake information on the platform.
