WHATSAPP WANTS TO ACCESS ALL YOUR CONTACT DETAILS

WhatsApp really, really wants to access all of your #, and not just those who use the platform. According to their terms of service, users “provide the phone numbers of # users and your other contacts in your # phone # book on a regular basis. You confirm you are authorised to provide us such numbers to allow us to provide our services.”

Technically, you can refuse access, but WhatsApp will reprimand you by not showing any of the names of your message threads – pretty annoying for a # platform – and will prevent you from making calls or starting group # or broadcasts.

If you do allow it access, WhatsApp will be able to read the information of everyone from your gynaecologist to your dealer. There’s ongoing debate as to whether or not this is even # under The # General Data Protection Regulation #, which forbids the sharing of personal # without consent. Say you know someone who doesn’t use WhatsApp, but is saved as a contact in your phone. Their # number is shared with WhatsApp, without their #.
