This is how the controversial new WhatsApp update works
In this section, there are applications such as Telegram or Signal, the latter has been the application recommended by great personalities such as Edward Snowden or Elon Musk because it cannot access the data of its customers.
What can WhatsApp do with our data?
In the first place, those responsible for the platform ensure that they cannot see our private messages or listen to our calls. "Whatever you share, remains between you," justifies the application on its website. On the other hand, WhatsApp ensures that they do not keep the records of the calls to whom we are writing or calling from application; They are also not allowed to see our shared location as it is encrypted, which means that no one can see your location except the people you share it with.
Lastly, WhatsApp has ensured that it does not share our data with Facebook: «When you give us permission, we access the numbers in your phonebook only so that messaging is fast and reliable. We do not share your contact lists with other applications offered by Facebook. In this sense, the groups also remain private and you can download your data at any time to see what information they have about you.
