WhatsApp's head, Will Cathcart, said the company will leave the UK if forced to weaken its encryption policies under the country's upcoming Online Safety Bill. Cathcart described the bill as the most concerning piece of online legislation currently discussed in the western world. The Meta-owned app is not the only one that refused to lower its encryption standards. Even Signal had a similar response.
