THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: ‘WhatsApp exports your user data every night.’ This warning or allegation from business tycoon Elon Musk is giving sleepless nights to meta users around the world.

Musk’s allegation comes at a time when WhatsApp is preparing to introduce its new AI features. WhatsApp is rolling out features including creating a similar profile picture as per users’ demand. Musk alleges that Meta, the parent company of WhatsApp, is exporting the private information of Indians worth crores to other foreign countries.

It is not strange for WhatsApp to be mired in controversies since they were once held accountable for the ambiguousness surrounding end-to-end encryption. Information such as name, location, and age will also be sold on the cyber underworld, the dark web. WhatsApp is also trying to generate revenue by bringing advertisements on Facebook by misusing the predilections of users.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp recently introduced the Chat Lock feature to make confidential chats more secure. WhatsApp is also rumoured to release a feature that allows users to customize colours and themes for each message. Messenger and Instagram already have this feature. WhatsApp is also planning to launch a service that will create interesting AI videos of friends or close friends of users; the only condition is that the user allows access to photos in the gallery.

Stickers can be made by providing photos of individuals. Cyber ​​experts say that the video feature can be misused. Another feature to share photos, documents and videos on WhatsApp is also awaiting its launch.
