WhatsApp Ranked Worst at Protecting Your Privacy and Data

Post by Admin on Thu Jun 25, 2015 5:08 pm

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has released its annual report card of tech companies for 2015 based upon how much they keep your personal data secure from government snoops.

And the Worst Companies Award goes to…
  • At&T

Yes, you heard right! WhatsApp is one of the three worst companies at protecting its users’ data so if you are concerned about your data privacy, you should think twice before using WhatsApp.
The EFF released its latest Who Has Your Back report based on 5 basic criteria that included:
Follows Industry Accepted Best Practices
Tells Users About Government Data Demands
Discloses Policies on Data Retention
Discloses Government Content Removal Requests
Pro-user Public Policy: opposes backdoors
The prominent privacy advocacy group analysed 24 companies in total, and among them AT&T, Verizon and WhatsApp came out to be the worst companies at protecting its users’ data.
Where Verizon met two criteria of the EFF’s criteria, WhatsApp and AT&T only met one.
AT&T, WhatsApp and Verizon have some worst policies when it comes to protecting its users’ personal data from government requests.
i4info wrote:Here’s some advice from the EFF to WhatsApp: “WhatsApp should publicly require a warrant before turning over user content, publish a law enforcement guide and transparency report, have a stronger policy of informing users of government requests, and disclose its data retention policies.
Also, Google and Microsoft both earned just three stars each, which isn’t really up to the mark for such two companies that claim definite levels of respect and trust when it comes to data privacy.
However, the EFF report also says that Microsoft has made improvement in company practices and will be in a position to raise a fourth star in September.

Companies that earned the full five out of five stars on the EFF’s privacy scoreboard are Adobe, Apple, Yahoo, Dropbox, WordPress, Wickr, Credo Mobile, Sonic and Wikimedia.
