It is further said that users’ data to be shared with Facebook includes location, IP address, phone and network operator details, monetary transactions, and payments.
Earlier, the app, after users’ consent, reserved the right to share some data including location and phone number with Facebook. This led governments around the globe to investigate the implications of data sharing.
Adding to this matter, Federal Minister for Information Technology Amin ul Haq informed that the country has developed an in-house app, an alternate to WhatsApp, namely Smart Office, and is currently under the testing phase.
Initially, it will be used by government officials and employees.
