With evolving technology every person wants to know and try the best and latest applications available in App stores. People are becoming technology oriented by every passing day. It’s easier to communicate with others through web rather than calling or visiting them for specific purposes. Whether it’s for professional concerns or to watch a movie or even if you want to hang out with friends, mobile based applications serve the purpose well. One of those applications in market is WhatsApp.
WhatsApp is a free third party application which allows you to communicate with your friends and family, share images, videos and links using network access. It’s simple and easy app that works on androids, Window phones, blackberry and IOS very smoothly.
Now coming to how does it works part. Like many other software, this application is internet based. If you don’t have internet than this app is not for you but fortunately nowadays every mobile network is providing this facility at minimal charges. Anyways, this application once installed creates a user account in the database. After that it accesses the smartphones phonebook and syncs it with its own database making it easier for the user to connect with his/her own contacts those who have accounts on whatsapp.
Charges for this application
Whatsapp, unlike many other social media apps, is free for all. That is one of the reasons that make it popular among the young generation. In fact in all groups of generations having smart phones use this application on regular basis.
Security and Privacy
It has been noticed that WhatsApp does have some security and privacy issues. The texts send through it are not encrypted so anyone who can trace back the data packets can read the whole text.
Another concern that comes is mind is that the phonebook is copied to whatsapp data server in order to sync the existing WhatsApp users with that respective users list. In this case the contacts information is available on it even of those who are not using the application.
Kids nowadays are much intelligent and clever than their peers. They tend to hide information from parents and surroundings. Parents cannot keep an eye on them when it comes to such applications as there is no phone record generated. However, there are many spy software in the market that parents can install on their child’s phone to keep a check on them.
How can parents get a spy for WhatsApp?
Parents now have nothing to worry about they can keep an eye on their kid’s activity without making them suspicious of being watched. Many spys are available online for this purpose.
A spy generates a log of every activity executed on the smart phone. You will be able to track your kid anytime and anywhere with or without GPS. You can watch their videos, images, whatsapp SMS, multimedia sharing’s easily.
WhatsApp is an excellent application which I would use without any hesitation.
