We all know how Facebook was involved in security breach and data leakage in the past. As for the moral ethics shown by Facebook, we have been forced to ask ourselves if it will take the unpleasant step to undermine its users’ unencrypted messages. Everything to publish announcements, as well as other reasons for security such as anti-terrorism?
According to a Forbes report, the social media giant looks in that direction.
Facebook Can Collect Data From Whatsapp Messages for Ads: Report
Everyone received the encryption notification from start to finish when a new conversation started on WhatsApp. Most of us believe it is a fail-safe communication security, but what we do not know is that the end-to-end encryption is in transit.
The application of your phone keeps the messages unencrypted, the same for the recipient who also receives the decoded message.
Facebook, WhatsApp’s owner, can always extract spyware messages on user phones and use them for targeted ads. One of the two devices connected to the use of spyware can be used to extract the data. Of course, implementing spyware on any of our devices is a piece of cake for Facebook.
It’s public knowledge that Facebook is rich in publicity. Therefore, extracting data for more profits is something that is expected of Facebook. The main question that arises here is that Facebook, even after it is in all the data scams, will withdraw Facebook from its user’s uncoded data to maximize its advertising revenue?
We all need to keep in mind that implementing spyware on smartphones is much easier and cheaper than buying new equipment to find user preferences.
It’s not hard to see where Facebook can handle all these things, it’s just a matter of time.
