WhatsApp was forcibly getting consent from users
WhatsApp also clarified that it still stands today with the same principle of privacy of people, in which WhatsApp says that the conversation you have with your family and friends is only between you and no third can read it. is.
What did WhatsApp say in its explanation?
How much truth in whatsapp?
After this cleaning of WhatsApp, many users must have started thinking that they should return to WhatsApp again. One, there was a problem in the signal for a couple of days, the user also had a problem, at least if the user showed displeasure, then WhatsApp responded and talked to the user on the problem.
But there is no need to be more happy with this. The fact is that WhatsApp has already shared a lot of information about the user with Facebook. If WhatsApp writes in its explanation that this update does not extend the ability to share data with Facebook in any way, it means that WhatsApp has already been sharing data with Facebook. Now this limit can be months or even years.
This also does not mean that there is no misunderstanding here. Like, often people will ask you when to go to signal or whatsapp read our group and private conversation? So the answer is no. Your message cannot be read. However, if someone hacks your phone or extracts data from your cloud, then that is an exception.(Many users save their conversations on the cloud.) WhatsApp performs all of your conversations on an end-to-end encryption, as does signaling, whereas it does not on Telegram. For this, you have to choose the secret chat option on Telegram.
What WhatsApp takes this data from you ?
Despite this there are many facts which still need to be worried. Recently a picture went viral in which it was told that which app is collecting so much information. In this, where the signal was not collecting any data, WhatsApp takes information about your purchase, financial transactions, location, contact, content, usage data, identity and diagnostic.
Government of India is considering data protection law
This is not the only thing. Even though these companies are doing this in India, but in countries where there are strict privacy laws, like in Europe, there are changes in their rules. The Government of India has been considering the Data Protection Act for many years. After several efforts, the government brought the data security bill last year but could not proceed on it.Last month, BJP MP Rajiv Chandrasekhar said that the Joint Parliamentary Committee will study the bill which means that it may take longer.
