WhatsApp is the most popular GLOBAL messaging app that also uses end-to-end encryption. This means that only the sender and the receiver can access the message AND images.
In essence, this allows people to share child abuse images without getting caught. Facebook is planning to switch all of their other messaging platforms over to end-to-end encryption, and Google is pushing to have end-to-end encryption for all searches (leading to Dark Web-like risks).

As a reminder, technology in and of itself is not bad/evil. Many app, software and hardware developers are not out to hurt anyone; they may very well have the noblest and best of intentions. However, any technology can be and will be used for bad/evil purposes by some. Parents have a real challenge today to stay up on what is happening in this area–for their own sakes, but certainly also for the well-being and safety of their children.

What you can do:

Pray for your children/grandchildren for protection from sexually explicit content.
Keep them safe. Visit protectyoungeyes.com for loads of solid information to assist you with this.
Know what your children are using for apps. Be diligent in reviewing the content they are exposed to. 
Openly discuss the dangers of the internet and allow conversations to flow on the issue.
