Is WhatsApp’s new privacy policy the end for your privacy?

On this episode of Orbital, we discuss WhatsApp’s new privacy policy and what it means for your data. Tech Advocate and Legal Director of (Software Freedom Law Center) Mishi Chaudhary Host Prannoy joins Parab to talk about this. We begin the episode with a change in whatsapp privacy policy means to you. WhatsApp has been sharing data with Facebook for a long time, but what has changed now? Also, how is WhatsApp’s agreement to share data with Facebook different from what is being offered now? Mishi answers all these questions in detail.

Then we talk about how you should be really careful with the changes in the privacy policy of WhatsApp. We mention why you should worry about advertising companies collecting huge amounts of information about your daily life and tell you what you can do to avoid it. Next, we discuss whether this recent outrage over WhatsApp’s privacy policy will turn into a mass exodus or return to the status quo in a few days. This is where we suggest an excellent alternative to WhatsApp, which includes Signal – one of the best privacy-focused messaging apps in the world. Finally, we talk about what steps you can take to ensure that you do not get stuck on platforms that are bad for your privacy, and why this is so important.
