Unfortunately, WhatsApp pays for its lack of clarity and also suffers, arguably, from Facebook’s poor reputation for managing and protecting user data. On social networks, the most worried people mistakenly believed that their private conversations on WhatsApp would be shared with Facebook. And that was enough for users to start migrating massively to alternatives like Telegram and Signal, apps that have propelled to the top of downloads, thanks in particular to Elon Musk and Edward Snowden.
Faced with this outcry, the messaging system was keen, probably too late, to clarify this point: the conversations being encrypted from end to end, WhatsApp can neither read messages nor listen to calls.
In addition, the messaging application claims it does not share contacts with Facebook. And specifies that neither her, nor Facebook, can see your location and the content of your discussion groups. Finally, WhatsApp indicates that it does not keep any trace of your exchanged messages or your audio and video conversations.
