Of recent a judge in Brazil order WhatApp to hand over message records to what was related to an ongoing drug investigation. The company refuse to comply with the order, because the company themselves don't have access to individual chat logs because of this the judge order that every telecommunication in the country to block WhatApp, in order to punish the company. which means that all Brazil folks can't use the WhatApp service.

According to TechCrunch, The judge also warns that any Telecommunication company who fail to block the service will be penalize with a fine accordingly.

Having said that, this outage is said to last 72 Hours. As a result of this another company Telegram is taking advantage of this because almost all Brazil folks has now switch to Telegram - another WhatApp like messaging app.

Despite all this WhatApp remain Unshakable, their number one spot still remain. Here is the statement released by the CEO and Co Founder Jan Koum:
Yet again millions of innocent Brazilians are being punished because a court wants WhatsApp to turn over information we repeatedly said we don’t have. Not only do we encrypt messages end-to-end on WhatsApp to keep people’s information safe and secure, we also don’t keep your chat history on our servers. When you send an end-to-end encrypted message, no one else can read it – not even us. While we are working to get WhatsApp back up and running as soon as possible, we have no intention of compromising the security of our billion users around the world
This will clear all the thought for those who don't believe in whatapp encryption, whatApp is really encrypted, you are secured.
