How does it work? A fake message tells users that they can easily change the look of the app by adding a variety of colours. The message says “I love WhatsApp new colors” adding a link that the user is invited to click on to get the update. At this point the poor WhatsApp user is asked to share the message with up to 12 friends, in order to make this “new feature” work on their app.

3 million fine for data sharing in ItalyWhatsApp, the most popular instant messaging app in the world, has been under the radar of European privacy authorities soon after its decision to update its privacy policy last year. After several debates, direct attacks and criticism, now WhatsApp has to face a huge fine. What’s happened?

Italian’s antitrust authorities have just fined the Facebook-owned app €3 Million.

Actually the fine is even lower than expected, the maximum being €5 million.

From now on no-one has access to messages that are stored on Apple’s cloud backup without WhatsApp decryption key.
