France Has A Problem With Facebook And Their Whatsapp Privacy
When you understand that EVERY application on your phone can see every other app, your contacts and activity (calls, texts, pics, location, email, messages) of your phone, you will be more careful of which "free" apps you download.
France’s data privacy watchdog may fine messaging app WhatsApp if it does not comply with an order to bring its sharing of user data with parent company Facebook (FB.O) into line with French privacy law.
“The only way to refuse the data transfer for “business intelligence” purpose is to uninstall the application,” the CNIL said in a statement.
