Pavel Durov criticized WhatsApp and advised to remove it from a smartphone

Recently, another critical vulnerability was found in WhatsApp. The problem has already been solved, but Telegram founder Pavel

Durov could not restrain himself and criticized the messenger developers.

What does

“In May, I predicted that vulnerabilities in WhatsApp would be identified, and serious security problems would follow one after another, as was the case before,” Durov writes.

According to him, the problem is with Facebook’s parent company, which participates in the US National Security Agency’s Population Data Collection (PRISM) program.

“Not only does WhatsApp not protect your messages, butThis application is constantly used as a Trojan horse to spy on photos and videos that users store outside of WhatsApp. Why would they do this? Facebook has been part of government surveillance programs since long before it acquired WhatsApp. It’s naive to think that the company changed its policy after the deal,” Durov assures.

Therefore, his recommendations to usersare categorical: “Regardless of the main intentions of WhatsApp’s parent company, the recommendations for their end users are the same: if you don’t want all your photos and messages to one day become public, you should delete WhatsApp from your phone.”
