WhatsApp💬 Beta Breaks Privacy🔐 Promise

  |   Ghana News / Tech News

In 2014, when WhatsApp💬 was going to be acquisitioned by Facebook👤, there were concerns that FB👤 would ruin the privacy that the messenger service offered, but WhatsApp💬 co-founder Jan Koum said that nothing of the sort would happen. Koun grew up in the USSR⚒ in the 1980’s and said he knew what it’s like to be monitored📹, he explained: “Respect for your privacy is coded into our DNA … None of that (personal) data has ever been collected and stored by WhatsApp💬, and we really have no plans to change that.” He further said that the acquisition wouldn’t have been done if FB👤 changed that crucial value. However, Developer Javier Santos went poking🔎 around in WhatsApp’s Android beta🅱 version and found there’s a hidden👀 setting that allows users to “Share [your] WhatsApp account information with Facebook to improve [your] Facebook experiences.” Let’s hope FB👤 changes their mind about it.
