WhatsApp Can Be Used To ‘Blackmail’ You, Warns FIA


ISLAMABAD – Federal Investigation Agency’s Cyber Crime Wing has warned WhatsApp users that they could be “blackmailed” through the app.

The Cyber Crime Wing, in a tweet, said that messages sent on WhatsApp could be recovered later, even after they were deleted.

“Avoid sending messages that you will want to delete later,” the FIA cautioned the messaging app’s users.

The information comes to light just as users are already switching to Signal and Telegram following WhatsApp’s privacy terms fiasco.
