Can the latest policy update of WhatsApp infringe users’ privacy?
Do you know that the in-app notification from WhatsApp is part of its upcoming global roll-out for over 2 billion users.
How you use it depends on you and we know more details in detail.
If you are not paying for it, you become the product. It simply gives a message that if you are getting the service free then you are a product yourself, and recently proven again by a WhatsApp notification, which was received by millions of Indian users. The in-app notification from WhatsApp is part of its upcoming global roll-out for over 2 billion users.
Policy updates read, “When you install, access or use our services, WhatsApp receives or collects certain information to operate, provide, improve, understand, adapt, support and market our services. Should do. “
In addition, “Businesses interacting with using our services may provide us with information about interaction with you. We require each of these businesses to provide us with any information as required by applicable law Calls to act. “
Further we talk that during its launch in the year 2009, WhatsApp has now introduced new terms and has lured us to provide its services for free that it will not share your messages or data with anyone. Now, when every third person in the world uses WhatsApp, and this huge data can be used to grow Facebook’s business.
You use WhatsApp to keep in touch with your family, friends and your office. Around 400 million people in India use this social messaging application in their personal and professional lives. Not only this, even court summons are being sent to this app, because it has become an important part of our life. Many of you may have pressed the agree button without reading the latest WhatsApp notifications. Now you should understand what kind of data WhatsApp will share with Facebook.
After getting your permission, your mobile phone number and all contacts in your address book will now be with WhatsApp, which will also reveal your status message. Apart from this, with the help of WhatsApp payment service, it will have information about your bank balance. The app will collect every piece of information wherever you spend your money.
In the coming days, companies will use WhatsApp for payment, and then it will contain important information related to your finances. Your location can be tracked through your mobile phone. Thus, WhatsApp will contain all information about your home, office address and your relatives and friends.
Which market do you like to visit or which restaurant do you want to go to and which mobile phone do you use. WhatsApp will contain all the information and it can be kept on its server for a long time. Your message will not be read directly, but who you talk to, or to whom you have sent a message and in which WhatsApp group you are most active, will know.
With all these information, your profile will be created, and WhatsApp will keep an eye on you. You may be wondering how WhatsApp will benefit from this profile? This data will be transferred from Facebook to WhatsApp. Facebook has already built large data centers to keep information related to millions of people. These data will be shared with other companies.
This only explains the fact that WhatsApp is not a free messaging service. Not only this, but the claims of other apps that guarantee you free service are also false. The truth is instead of free service with these apps, you give your valuable data to these companies for free.
When was the last time you used our services (your “last seen”); And when you last updated about your “information”.
