The + Important of the Conditions of Use

Terms of use for WhatsApp, Telegram and Line Do we really know what we do by accepting them?

In line with the acquisition of WhatsApp by Facebook last month and given the concern of users of the instant messaging application, that the agreement could lead to a change in its privacy policyI would like to comment on some questions about three of the most important messaging applications and their terms of use.

With the little time we have, and if we had to read the privacy policy of the applications in full, we will surely have our devices almost empty. We try to go through their pages as fast as we can, accept, accept But what do we accept? No idea.


When installing an application on the phone or running it for the first time, we are warned of the services or functions that you will use. So far everything perfect. That a map application asks you for access to the GPS, well normal. Or that one of the effects for your photos asks you to access the reel, it is logical.

But Why do you want a simple notes application or a game to have access to your contacts, messages or calls? I have to admit that the applications that I stopped installing will be counted on the fingers of one hand because I did not agree with the intentions of accessing my phone.

The privacy policy of the applications are unclear and do not specify certain aspects of the service.

As usual, you have the last word. I know that it is difficult to give up, as in the case at hand, an instant messaging application that all your friends use, even if you find something suspicious in the conditions, but, at least, it would be convenient for you to know, roughly, what you accept with WhatsApp, Telegram or Line.


Although they assure that they can access our contacts on a regular basis To know who uses the service, they will not use any name, emails, or address, only phone numbers and the name chosen when registering. Photos, location, audios and messages will only be seen by your contact, although they are stored without specifying the duration.

The data passes through the WhatsApp servers just enough to deliver it to the recipient and will be deleted after 30 days if you have not been connected during that time. They add that may save any information to which they are legally bound.

They will only reasonably share personal information with third parties, if they can improve service. The minimum age of use is 16 years and the servers are in the United States.


It has more concise terms than WhatsApp. All content is saved in your cloud but without specifying the physical location (for Europe it is stored in London) nor the time. They use symmetric technology encryption and do not detail minimum age of use.

They say they will only store phone number, name, contacts, profile picture and messages, to function properly. Secret conversations, connection time, device data and sent files are safe.
