What is the issue of WhatsApp Privacy?


There are some issues of WhatsApp that started around the same time. An issue arose on January 10, 2021, when WhatsApp Group invited links and user profiles started appearing in Google search. 

This may allow anyone who sees such links in Google search to join indexed groups.

Thousands of user profiles were also indexed by Google. From which the user's data can be obtained, including phone numbers and profile photos, how many people are in contact, etc.

WhatsApp has reportedly fixed the Google index problem. But if your data is already spread then it may be too late.

The second issue of continuing service is their new terms of service. Those terms would require users to consent to sharing WhatsApp user data with Facebook.

Yes, this is the same Facebook that has been plagued by privacy scandals for years. And if users do not consent to this sharing by February 8, 2021, they will not be able to use this service.

What kind of data will WhatsApp share with Facebook? Sensitive data that many people do not want to share. This includes your user ID, device ID, hardware model, operating system, battery level, signal strength, app version, browser information, mobile network, language, time zone, IP address, phone number, email address, contacts, advertising data, etc. Are included. And payment information.

According to a Wired article, WhatsApp has been sharing this data with Facebook since 2016. But along with the recent history of Facebook, pop ups have started appearing, which seems to have finally tipped the public against WhatsApp.
