Four Things You Should Avoid Doing on WhatsApp

WhatsApp is undeniably one of the most influential social media platforms in the world. With millions of active users, this messaging application allows people to interact with others who are far away through various communication methods such as text messages and calls. However, just like any other platform, WhatsApp has its own rules and regulations that users must abide. Failure to comply with these rules can result in the suspension or complete blocking of a user’s account.

One of the things that should be avoided on WhatsApp is spying on someone else’s conversations. This not only violates the privacy of others but can also lead to legal consequences such as accusations of harassment. It is important to respect the privacy of others and refrain from engaging in such activities.

Adding someone to a group without their prior authorization is another action that should be avoided on WhatsApp. Doing so could potentially violate data privacy laws, as group members can see the personal information and mobile number of the new member. It is best to seek consent from the person you wish to add to a group, especially if there is only one administrator who could be held responsible for any violations.

In the pursuit of creating a safe space on WhatsApp, it is important to refrain from sharing images, audios, or videos of others without their consent. This act can be seen as a violation of privacy and can lead to legal consequences, as seen in cases where fines have been imposed data protection agencies.

Similarly, sharing screenshots of conversations without consent is also an infringement on privacy. It is crucial to understand that capturing a screenshot does not automatically grant ownership of the image to the person who took it. Sharing such screenshots can expose someone’s identity, which is a breach of data protection regulations.

It is important to remember that not only WhatsApp but also the internet as a whole has its own set of rules and regulations. Users should be mindful of their actions and ensure that they respect the privacy of others while using the platform.
