WhatsApp: Your data is safe even from Facebook (and green horses)

The application WhatsApp, the standalone messaging app that's it Facebook bought last month for 16 billion dollars, it will not collect data.

The company, which will operate autonomously under Facebook ownership, posted on her blog this Monday that she knows the public's concerns that she believes her recent takeover may mean that their data will be collected. According to WhatsApp this is not going to happen.


"If our cooperation with Facebook it meant we had to change our values, we would not do it ", wrote Jan Koum, CEO of WhatsApp in blog of the company, adding that posts claiming that WhastApp will start collecting data are "irresponsible."

WhatsApp says it does not even collect basic information such as your email address or your birthday, unlike many social services such as Facebook. WhatsApp does not collect the message content or images sent between users.

According to the company's terms of service, "The content of any messages are not stored by the WhatsApp application - the messages go directly to the devices of the sender and the recipient and which can be deleted according to the user's choice."


Of course, what is not mentioned anywhere is the fact that now WhatsApp is Facebook. This means that even if the messages are not stored, Facebook has something worthwhile paying 16 for billions of dollars. The telephone numbers of the users' personal telephones.

The statements and the content of the statements of the "company" WhatsApp, were expected, as many people are in a dilemma after its acquisition by Facebook, which as we all know does not respect the personal data of its members.
