Nigerians have been warned of the dangers of using WhatsApp.
 
The alarm was raised by the National Information Technology Development Agency, NITDA, who advised Nigerians against using WhatsApp platform, following some changes in their Terms of Service and Privacy Policy which took effect on May 15, 2021.
 
This was disclosed in a statement issued on Tuesday by the NITDA Head of Corporate Affairs and External Relations, Hadiza Umar.
 
The statement said: “Nigerians may wish to note that there are other available platforms with similar functionalities which they may wish to explore. Choice of platform should consider data sharing practices, privacy, and ease of use among others.

“Limit the sharing of sensitive personal information on private messaging and social media platforms as the initial promise of privacy and security is now being overridden on the bases of business exigency.

“Nigeria’s engagement with Facebook continues. We have given them our opinion on areas to improve compliance with the NDPR.
