There are 20 crore Indian families using Whats App. It has become a habit to share hundreds of messages, photos, videos and other content. Those who are spending hours together on Whats App daily, except for sleeping, should learn about the terms and conditions. It is not safe to share anything and everything on Whats App, imagining that no one is watching.


You should be a major to use Whats App. In America, users should be above 13 years of age. In other countries, it is in accordance with the local rules and regulations. In India it is 18 years. Users can share only that content, on which they have complete rights. Actually, unlawful, abusive, insulting comments, threats, frightening, harassing, hurting through racist comments, hate mongering, provoking or encouraging illegal activities, are banned on Whats App. They have no place in Status, profile photos or messages. If these are found, the concerned account could be blocked, according to Whats App policy. The managers of the App urge that the users' personal data should be safely hidden, for which rules and regulations have to be followed. It has kept some control tools handy for this. Users can just go to settings and apply the controls.

Block
Any contact can be blocked on Whats App, without their consultation. If you wish, you can unblock. If you block someone, any message from them will not reach you. They will not get notifications like when you are online. Even status updates are not visible. No data of yours, including your profile photo can be accessed. Even your messages or calls to the blocked contact will not reach.

Everyone on your contact list will be able to see when you last appeared on Whats App and what profile photo you have put up. There are some settings regarding this. If you think anyone can see your status etc., you can click on 'everyone.' Click 'nobody,' if you think no one should watch. Likewise, you are automatically blocked to see their status or profile photos.

Sharing

End to End encryption means, the messages etc. will be passed on from the sender to the viewer, without anyone seeing it in between. They are coded. The receivers however, will have all the data that has been sent. They will share the same data with other Whats App users. Your location too will be shared. In this, if there is any offensive or abusive content, you can complain to Whats App.

Spam, hoaxes
When you get a message from someone for the first time, you will be asked to select one of these three options: Report spam, block or add to contact. Select any one of the options. If the other party has your Whats App number, they can contact you directly. Normally, spam messages are sent from strangers rather than from your contacts.

  • asking for personal info like credit, debit card numbers, pin numbers, bank account numbers etc.
  • asking you to forward some message
  • asking you to activate new features through links.
  • These type of messages are related to spam. Report them, without clicking on them.
