“Your private messages are still protected by end-to-end encryption – they stay between you and the person you’re communicating with, not a proxy server, WhatsApp or Meta, but anyone in between.” We will make it invisible,” he said in a blog post.

According to the company, connecting through a proxy maintains the high level of privacy and security that WhatsApp offers.
