@ceee They officially can't access content but let's look at some facta:
- owned by facebook.
- they store metadata and don't protect it much.
- Facebook (and thus WhatsApp) is integrated within the biggest mass surveillance program ever created.
- the app is closed source.
- the co-founder of WhatsApp recently left Facebook over a disagreement with zuck and another high ranking Facebook person because he couldn't agree on weakening the encryption for commercial purposes.
Not saying it's backdoored or anything because I can't prove that but just look at the facts and that should tell you something :)
Seeing a tinder ad somewhere does not count as evidence of anything.
It's called confirmation bias.
@ceee the Google definition is a bit snarky.
Confirmation bias is the tendency to interpret information in such a way that is in favour of previously held beliefs or events.
If a tinder as had played at any other time it would've seemed normal. Since it played at the time of the chat, the brain interprets a causative relationship with the previous recent event.
So it definitely is an example of conf bias and there's nothing wrong with that, it's how every brain works.
