Privacy Invasion Alert: How Much is WhatsApp Overstepping Boundaries?

Recently, Foad Dabiri (an engineer at Twitter) claimed that WhatsApp constantly uses your smartphone’s microphone even while he was asleep. This behavior is both peculiar and intrusive. However, upon checking the microphone usage history on my Samsung smartphone, it appears that WhatsApp is not excessively monitoring me, but this doesn’t mean so much.

Did you already checked your microphone/cam/location history today? In the future, I’m going to try using apps that prioritize privacy in communications.
