‘WhatsApp’ Spies, Records & Monitors EVERYTHING You Do

The old "If you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to worry about" slogan doesn't quite fit the bill when corrupt politicians, criminal bankers and psychopathic corporate CEO's are the one's collecting your information, they don't even follow the very rules which they created; they grant themselves 'immunity' in secret court hearings against facing criminal charges for crimes against humanity and genocide, they receive public funded bailouts every-time they screw up, and fail to live up to every and any promise they make without consequence, and they themselves break every rule and law (which they themselves created) on they way. This type of all to common 'do as I say, not as I do' double standard-ness is one of the key symptoms used in behavioral science terms to diagnose Neurosis with Sociopathic behavioral tendencies, the condition which has virtually taken over modern westernized society. 

Remember Facebook's founder and CEO Owner Mark Zuckerberg mocking his naive users and calling them "dumb fucks" for "trusting" him? Now it's getting even better as a popular application which Facebook recently acquired allows the corporation a vast number of liberties via the users iPhone.

WhatsApp was in the news on Saturday February 23 because the service went down for over five hours. At the very same time, there was a massive drug bust in Mexico, with an alleged drug kingpin being captured in a joint U.S./Mexico law enforcement operation. I am not certain that Facebook purposely turned off whatsApp to thwart the suspect's use of the app during the arrest, but the timing is certainly suspicious.

Nevertheless, I had installed WhatsApp [whatsapp.com] onto my phone some time back, before Facebook purchased it, and when the WhatsApp service was down Saturday, I went on my phone to look for more information about it to try and solve the problem.

That is when I came across the PERMISSIONS listed on the application index.

These are things that all users must agree to before installing the app on their phone.

The number of things that WhatsApp/Facebook can do is astounding.

As if Facebook was not creepy enough already, now it can do the following things, including audio/video recording you, saving and even directly calling all your contacts, modify/delete everything on your SD Card, have full internet access to your phone, accounts, and much more.

Here is the video I made discussing the matter and showing you the actual WhatsApp terms.

Is it really necessary for a messaging application to allow the company to record everything you do, snoop at, copy and call your contacts, and give them full authentication rights to your account? Of course not. SO that should raise the question: Why do they do it and what are they going to do with all your data?

Track you 24 hours a day, compile and sell all your data, probably provide it to whatever government agency asks for it, invade your privacy, and assault your dignity.
