The Year of Private and Secure Communication

Make a defiant statement to start the new year.

2019 has just begun, and this is the perfect time to stand your ground, fight back, and make clear your discontent of companies collecting and using your personal information for profit and invading your human right to privacy.

WhatsApp messenger, owned by Mark Zuckerberg the prince of Information peddling, is a prime example of a product that makes money by the collection of, not the protection of, personal information.

A vampiric information sucking machine. WhatsApp has access to your phone’s contacts, and has access to the numbers and names of your contacts, so WhatsApp could potentially see the number of someone’s counsellor, doctor or lawyer. If those two sets of data were put side by side, a person’s personal, private information suddenly wouldn’t seem quite so private. The information that WhatsApp collects is in the above statement, your contacts. Names, phones numbers, types of business etc. This information in today’s world is viewed as a commodity, a valuable saleable asset.

However one could speak endlessly about this topic, and assuredly be perceived as a tin foil wearing conspiracy theorist. So how about we get the information straight from WhatsApp.

Excerpt from WhatsApp Privacy Policy

“If you live in the European Economic Area your Services are provided by WhatsApp Ireland Limited (“WhatsApp Ireland”), If you live in any other country, your Services are provided by WhatsApp Inc. We are part of the Facebook Companies.

We collect information about your activity like how you use our Services, your settings, how you interact with others and the time, frequency, and duration of your activities and interactions.

We use various technologies to determine location, including IP, GPS, Bluetooth signals, and information about nearby Wi-Fi access points, beacons, and cell towers.

We work with third-party service providers and the Facebook Companies and require them to use your information with our instructions and terms.

WhatsApp receives information from, and shares information with, the Facebook Companies.

We collect, use, preserve, and share your information if we have a good-faith belief that it is reasonably necessary

WhatsApp Ireland shares information globally, both internally within the Facebook Companies, and externally with our partners”

If this is WhatsApps idea of a Privacy Policy, then one could only guess what their concept for Secret Chats would be.

WhatsApp is anything but Private. It is owned by Facebook, the biggest seller of personal information on the planet.

And yes,we have all heard the argument:

“I’ve got nothing to hide.”

Whether you have something to hide or not is totally irrelevant. Privacy is not about hiding — it is about autonomy, power and control; it is about your ability to decide how you present yourself to the world.

Or the ever present argument:

“This data collection, or reading my texts or seeing what I post has no effect on me.”

Data collection is a global issue. Lenders in African countries as well as in the U.S. have turned to social media and mobile phone records to assess creditworthiness — ie, to decide whether they will give you a loan or not.

You are not special, you don’t have superpowers that gives you an immunity against this gathering of information, this access to what you write, what you say, who you talk to, how often, photos that you share, all of it, is open, collected and traded.

You, and millions like you have been transformed into “information plantations”, and companies like WhatsApp, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Telegram and countless others are harvesting your information, invading your privacy, and reaping the benefits.

Facebook’s Messenger Secret Conversations

Facebook’s Messenger is a laughable attempt at Private Messaging.

The Facebook data privacy scandal centers around the collection of personally identifiable information of up to 87 Million People. This focuses on Facebook in general, and not Facebook’s Messenger, however the privacy policy of Facebook’s Messenger has recently been changed to read “Our systems automatically process content and communications you and others provide to analyze context and what’s in them.”

So, does Facebook Read your messages ?

Not in the sense that there is a person sitting there going through all messages sent and received, there is AI to handle that workload. Though many regular users do not realize that the links, messages, photos, videos and other communications they send privately to friends, family and other contacts are run through Facebook’s computer systems to detect harmful behavior or other violations of a company’s terms of service.

The definition of Harmful Behavior is so vague and vast that there is no clearly defined guidelines on what warrants further investigation. A photo shared between lovers could be deemed as harmful, thereby setting the wheels in motion to dig deeper and further into the communications between the two individuals.

But wait, doesn’t Facebook Messenger offer Secret Conversations?

Well, in a roundabout way yes, though these so called secret conversations are under the same regulations and procedures as regular messages sent between two people, the AI is still scanning these conversations, still looking for Harmful Behaviour. So in a sense these Secret Conversations are between you, your partner and Facebook’s AI. Not so secret after all.
