WhatsApp users’ privacy at risk Report

WhatsApp users’ privacy at risk Report

WhatsApp has a strong user base in the country with over 200 million active users.

The latest report states that the version between the 2.18.106 and 2.18.110 updates has got this new feature, which will let you download deleted media from the servers.

This feature rolled out incrementally to all users, Whatsapp is adding more features, functionality to Whatsapp payments with new updates.

Did you notice the all-new "Request Money' option on your beloved messaging app?"

Recently, WhatsApp has modified this behavior: "when a media is successfully downloaded, WhatsApp doesn't delete it from the server, allowing the users to download it again if the file was accidentally deleted in the path where WhatsApp saves media", said WABetaInfo. We were able to notice the fix after installing the WhatsApp beta version 2.8.113, which was the latest build at the time of filing this story. If not, you can update the app to receive the new feature. The undownloaded files were stored on WhatsApp server for 30 days and once it were downloaded, WhatsApp immediately deleted it from its folder. You can always opt out of the beta programme by uninstalling the testing version, and downloading the public version of WhatsApp from Google Play Store.

First reported by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp media dating back to three months could be downloaded again. If your friend sent you an image and you deleted it from your smartphone's gallery, you can open Whatsapp in order to be able to download it again. Also this seems to be a feature only available for Android and not for iOS users, at least not yet.

However with this change, this means that WhatsApp stores your media files on its servers even after it has been downloaded.

After the Cambridge Analytica case came to light, WhatsApp has now clarified how Facebook actually handles its customer's payments data with its parent company Facebook, to keep things transparent.
