I was on my companies wireless network and one of my friends sent me inappropriate images on my whatsapp.

Those images were downloaded to my phone directly. will my company know about it? will the data be stored?

Are my messages secure?

"WhatsApp communication between your phone and our server is fully encrypted.

We do not store your chat history on our servers. Once delivered successfully to your phone, chat messages are removed from our system

Even though data sent through our app is encrypted, remember that if your phone or your friend's phone is being used by someone else, it may be possible for them to read your WhatsApp messages. Please be aware of who has physical access to your phone."

You should be fine. Whatsapp is fully encrypted, so your employer shouldn’t be able to see the content.
