Do you like What’s App? Think twice before using it

What’s App has just been awarded the worst app in terms of security.

Best scores go to Dropbox, Adobe, Apple, Wikimedia, Yahoo.

But the 2 giants Microsoft and Google could do better to protect us!

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
  • WhatsApp
  • Verizon

The EFF released its latest Who Has Your Back report based on 5 basic criteria that included:
  • Follows Industry Accepted Best Practices
  • 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 back doors

AT&T, WhatsApp and Verizon have some worst policies when it comes to protecting its users’ personal data from government requests.

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.
