Data leak: Facebook surrounds questions, but when will WhatsApp cleanup

Last night Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg was present in front of the American Senators and there he answered quite a few questions. During this time, Zuckerberg told about the business model of Facebook which is advertising based. Simply put, Facebook collects information from users and advertisers give advertisements to users with the help of those inputs. In such a situation, when the eyes of all the world are on Facebook in terms of information about the users, then the Whatsapp has been forgotten.


Last night Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg was present in front of the American Senators and there he answered quite a few questions. During this time, Zuckerberg told about the business model of Facebook which is advertising based. Simply put, Facebook collects information from users and advertisers give advertisements to users with the help of those inputs. In such a situation, when the eyes of all the world are on Facebook in terms of information about the users, then the Whatsapp has been forgotten.

Actually, Facebook collects data from users and shows advertisements, but Whatsapp's business model does not work like this. No ads are shown in the Whatsapp app yet. Nor does any payment of any kind be made by the users. In this way questions can arise regarding Whatsapp's methodology. Because Whatsapp is the parent company of Facebook itself.

A few days ago, experts have expressed concerns about Whatsapp security features. They believe that they are not as convincing as they are claimed to be. Experts have questioned some of the provisions of its Users Agreement, where most of the wrong jobs do not come in handy or some challenge them.

The statement was issued on behalf of Whatsapp, and it was reported that he only collects little information and every message is end-to-end encrypted. But right after that in the media reports, information regarding Whatsapp's payment policy came out that the company shares information collected under the Payment of Practice Privacy Policy, which includes Facebook. The company says that they share information so that they can improve payment operations.

The privacy policy also states that the information that is shared with third party services includes your mobile phone number, registration information, device identifier, VPAs (virtual payment address) and Sender's UPI pin and payment amount. However, WhatsApp was informed that the company does so to improve the payment process.

But overall the payment related data is being transmitted to Facebook, so nothing can be said about how Facebook uses this data. Also, it is important to know here that Whatsapp has launched a separate app for business users sometime ago, i.e. Whatsapp also can use data anywhere in the near future. At present, all rights of the company are with Facebook and there is no clear information for its business model.

The question is, if Whatsapp is free and does not use customer data for advertising like Facebook, then what is its business model? And if Whatsapp also supplies data with Facebook, then its cleaning will come out. When people will take a look at it. Will Mark Zuckerburg also give a response in terms of Whatsapp?
