What data is collected and shared on From WhatsApp?
The text and chats are indeed end-to-end secured so what sort of data is being collected?
Apart from text, WhatsApp knows your profile pictures the link you share among your friends, and the groups you’re in. There are also a few minute data such as the time you use it, your monthly data, etc.
Well, almost every single piece of data collected by WhatsApp will be shared with Facebook. This is very scary and alarming. This can even create a thought of using it any further. Earlier we used to have an option to not share our data is completely wiped out.
What data will be stored with WhatsApp business account?
When we talk about business account, we must be aware that our data are shared with several other people and all the works with other third party services. So be careful with what you share with one of those business accounts on WhatsApp.
Previously according to the policy, WhatsApp said that they do not allow any third-party banner ads on WhatsApp. Till date, they have been firm with their words but with a clause that if they ever what to allow those banners they’ll update the policy. Which can be a hint for the future.
