German privacy watchdog picks on Facebook
hamburg - Facebook should immediately stop storing and accessing data from the approximately 35 million German users of its messaging service WhatsApp. This has given a privacy watchdog in Hamburg Tuesday.
This change may, however, not acceptable according to the Hamburg privacy watchdog. Two years ago promised that the details of WhatsApp users would not be shared with Facebook. That this should happen now, without asking for explicit consent, is contrary to German privacy laws.
