This option will show up as an option for all of your contacts and any pictures that you send to them will appear in your gallery.

WhatsApp is a secure alternative to SMS
WhatsApp is a secure alternative to SMS in many ways. Unlike SMS, it uses end-to-end encryption to protect the privacy of its users. In addition to this, messages sent with WhatsApp are not stored on the service’s servers. Instead, they are sent through WiFi, so the sender and receiver will never have to worry about their data getting intercepted. Furthermore, WhatsApp encrypts all files sent to or from it.

The network behind WhatsApp’s messaging app is a highly secure one. It has over 2 billion users worldwide and turned on end-to-end encryption by default. As a result, WhatsApp has become the largest encrypted messaging app in the world. WhatsApp users have to exchange a security code to read messages from the other person’s phone. This method ensures that messages are private and are not accessible to anyone other than the people they’re intended
