Whatsapp is unsafe and unsecure

Under the growing pressure, will WhatsApp revisit its decision and revise its privacy policy?

Is Whatsapp unsafe to use now?

While signing up for Facebook, Instagram, or Whatsapp, a user already agrees on sharing his information with the companies. The information is then given to the advertisers.

Moreover, as Facebook is the parent company, agreeing with WhatsApp’s new privacy policy does not make any big difference.

This new WhatsApp privacy policy would not make any difference as all the WhatsApp users have already shared their information and data with Facebook.

Also, shifting to a new app like Signal, Telegram, etc. would mean sharing your information with these companies too.

The day someone has joined social media platform, he has already compromised on his privacy.

So, there is no point in showing concerns for using free products.

‘If you’re not paying for the product, you are the product’.
