WhatsApp App is popular among everyone these days. People are not even eating and sleeping; rather they are only chatting on WhatsApp. If numerous groups and chat have taken your time, then you should be careful right now. According to Electronic Frontier Foundation, WhatsApp is not as secured as Facebook, Apple, or Google. Your information can leak at any time from here. WhatsApp had released an update for end-to-end encryption. They said that this encryption system would protect users’ information. But the EFF is saying that it’s not safe at all.
WhatsApp is being used by over 1 billion people all over the world. Data protection of these users should be the sole responsibility of WhatsApp. But they lack responsibility. So Govt. can sneak into your information any time. You need to be cautious about it. Because WhatsApp authority is not saying anything clearly regarding this, they are not even ensuring that this information won’t be leaked to a third party. So there’s a fear of misuse of your information.
That’s why your information can always be monitored and misused in any case.
Therefore the data protection of its users must be ensured by WhatsApp. Twenty-six different companies have taken various protection systems keeping user convenience in mind. EFF has classified them into five different categories and awarded them. Nine companies have received these awards. The companies are – Adobe, Credo, Dropbox, Sonic, Uber, and Wicker. But Amazon and WhatsApp didn’t get enough points. They are too backward on the list of 5-star companies. They have received only two stars. That’s why how much safe is WhatsApp for the exchange of valuable information should be determined by yourself.
