After Facebook ... a new problem facing WhatsApp Web

After Facebook ... a new problem facing WhatsApp Web

New complaints were registered by WhatsApp users in several countries in conjunction with the world's preoccupation with the privacy crisis of the application and sharing data with its parent company Facebook. But this time for WhatsApp Web.

After Facebook ... a new problem facing WhatsApp Web


According to Al Arabiya Net, the complaints revolve around allegations that “WhatsApp” reveals the numbers registered on users ’phones on Google’s search index, in case they use the app on desktop computers.


The WhatsApp application, which has about 2.2 billion users around the world, had postponed the amendment of the application's terms of service following user protests.


After "WhatsApp" forced users to agree to share their users' data on Facebook under the condition that the account was deleted before February 8th. The search for other similar messaging platforms began. But the application has retracted and said that the deadline will be until next May, and will not delete accounts that do not agree to its new policy to protect the privacy of users' data.


In the midst of the waves of displacement of other applications from individuals and institutions around the world, governments entered the crisis line, which refused to submit to privacy policies and their technical bodies opened investigations into the nature of these new policies, and transferred the accounts of their official bodies to other similar applications.


Amidst mounting criticism and expanding its global reach, WhatsApp pledged to make greater efforts to clarify misinformation regarding the new privacy and security policy, stressing that the recent update provides greater transparency about the way data is collected and used, and that the recent update does not expand the database for sharing data with Facebook.


And "WhatsApp" had begun a few days ago to alert its two billion users to update its privacy policy - and if they want to continue using the popular messaging app, they should accept it.


The new terms, delivered in early 2021, have caused anger among tech experts, privacy advocates, business people and government organizations and sparked a wave of defections toward rival services.
