At a meeting this summer, British officials asked WhatsApp to come up with technical solutions to allow them to access the content of messages — effectively, a back door. UK intelligence officials believe a compromise could be possible — pointing out that cybersecurity isn't binary and that services offer different levels of cybersecurity to deal with different levels of threats.
