WhatsApp, one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, however has a lot to learn from Telegram in terms of functionality. Whatsapp offers privacy features to protect users’ information. However, it is important to be aware of the limitations and risks of these features, as modified versions, such as WhatsApp GB, can circumvent some of these features, compromising users’ privacy by making some of WhatsApp’s privacy features completely ineffective or vulnerable. So if you don’t want to embarrass yourself, see the danger of posting things you don’t want others to see on WhatsApp in this special article by Seletronic.

Be very careful when using WhatsApp because of these things

Below, we list WhatsApp privacy features that may be completely ineffective if you are dealing with a person using WhasApp GB?

1. “Delete for Everyone” feature is not always foolproof:

Official WhatsApp’s “Delete for Everyone” feature allows users to delete sent messages on both the sender’s and the recipient’s device. However, WhatsApp GB can bypass this function by allowing deleted messages to be recovered after the deadline. This means that the recipient or third parties can recover and view messages that have supposedly been deleted, which represents a breach of privacy. So think before sending, so you don’t regret it later!

2. Statuses, even if private, can be seen by GB:

Official WhatsApp private statuses allow users to share photos, videos or texts with a selected group of contacts. However, WhatsApp GB can bypass privacy settings, allowing unauthorized users to view these private statuses. This violation compromises users’ privacy as their restricted posts can be seen by unauthorized people. Imagine being badmouthing your boss, or thinking that your parents wouldn’t see what you were up to?

3. Single-view photos and videos can be viewed more often and even downloaded

Recently, the official WhatsApp introduced the option to send photos and videos that disappear after being viewed once. However, WhatsApp GB can allow these media to be viewed as many times as a person wants in addition to allowing single-view photos and videos to be downloaded by users, even if the intention of the feature is for them to disappear after being viewed. Never send intimate or compromising photos or videos, if it only needs to be seen once, that means it shouldn’t even be sent to that person.

Although official WhatsApp offers privacy features such as “Delete for Everyone“, private status and temporary media viewing, it is essential to recognize that the WhatsApp GB can circumvent these features, affecting users’ privacy. If you really want to have security and privacy, it is highly recommended to never post something that you do not want others to see, because even if you try to use the “Delete for Everyone” feature, or want to leave your statuses private a GB user can have access to this. Always be aware of potential risks when sharing sensitive and personal information on any messaging platform.
