All eyes are on the UK as WhatsApp considers leaving the country due to proposed legislation that would force the company to break end-to-end encryption.

The Online Safety Bill has drawn criticism from companies such as Signal and WhatsApp, both of which have threatened to shut down their services in the UK unless it can keep its encryption intact.

Will Cathcart, Meta’s head of WhatsApp, said that it would be an odd choice for them to lower the security of its product to comply with the proposed bill and affect 98% of users who are outside the UK.

This dispute has drawn opposition from organizations like NSPCC, whose Richard Collard stated that there is a way to deal with online grooming and abusive material without sacrificing encryption.

In contrast, TikTok faces a potential nationwide ban in the United States due to privacy concerns.
