WhatsApp chats leaked? Here is how to avoid it | Technology News

New Delhi: WhatsApp Breaches are posted online in bold headlines causing fear for all to see. Due to the nature of their sensitive and private discussions, a series of WhatsApp leaks have made users feel threatened with many wondering how reliable WhatsApp’s claim of end-to-end encryption is.

The most important message for WhatsApp users is that the security of the application is quite high. WhatsApp has stated that no third party will be able to view anyone’s WhatsApp chats, photos or videos. Facebook does not have access to the information and WhatsApp does not have access to it either. The talks can only be read by the sender and the recipient of WhatsApp. No one can claim that they do not have access to this encryption because it is enabled by default.

WhatsApp leaks will keep happening. If you are not careful about what you do on WhatsApp or how you handle your phone, you could be in danger too. You could be in contact with criminals, transmitting or receiving restricted content, or doing something that is considered illegal. As a result, if someone you have been talking to on WhatsApp is detained by the authorities, suspicion will fall on you by association. So no, it won’t keep you safe.

In the end, all your information is stored on your phone or on a cloud drive. When there is a suspicion of wrongdoing or criminal conduct, the same information can be made available to government authorities upon request.

Then there are the WhatsApp leaks of another kind. These occur when someone gains access to someone else’s phone and photographs or screenshots their WhatsApp conversations. This is a violation that occurs beyond the scope in which WhatsApp operates and over which it has no authority. Anyone who steals or loses your smartphone while you are not looking can take screenshots of your private data, images and videos, and then “leak” the material to other people.

There is another way for WhatsApp leaks to happen. WhatsApp users frequently download applications that are found to contain malware. They are mostly designed to steal money, but they can also take data and communications. When a WhatsApp user downloads such an application, they put their privacy at risk. Even secure platforms like the Google Play Store, Apple App Store, and others can be used to download malware. These malicious programs disguise themselves as legitimate applications. The most recent is the well-known Squid Game. In fact, Google just removed 150 apps from its Play Store.

WhatsApp has been accused of collecting information that its parent company, Facebook, intends to exploit for commercial purposes. This can take the form of usernames, phone numbers, and location to understand the user’s fingerprints and provide targeted advertisements.

Your safety and security are ultimately under your control. You need to be careful what you discuss with your friends, family, and co-workers. Over time, your conversations are broadcast to large numbers of people, including complete strangers. If the chats contain something inappropriate, they can be used against you. So, to begin with, don’t do the following five things on WhatsApp:

1. Do not talk on WhatsApp about anything that could be considered criminal, even if it is on the verge of being it: drugs, pornography, abuse, etc.

2. On WhatsApp, do not post or discuss compromising photos or videos of yourself or other people.

3. Never discuss or disclose financial transactions on WhatsApp.

4. Don’t talk about or reveal any event you were in when you acted out of place.

5. Always remember that prudence, whether on WhatsApp or in real life, is the best part of value.
