R A started this petition to Facebook and

WhatsApp messenger do not FORCE us to grant Facebook permission to have access to our contacts / mobile devices. 


This is incredibly invasive of users' privacy rights and should be a choice in a so-called democratic society NOT an ultimatum.


People have sensitive information on their phones - like their email accounts, bank applications etc - so WhatsApp will be putting all its users at higher security risk of getting hacked


Why does Facebook need access to my device and contacts? 


What right do I have to consent to whatsApp giving Facebook access to my contacts - from whom I haven't received permission to share their contact info? 


Facebook is invasive enough as it is, "watching" us, already accessing our devices and now wanting permission to access our contacts - this is disturbing to say the least. 


Luckily for us there are other messaging application options (SIGNAL, TELEGRAM...), which we have been getting used to in the meantime.


This has nothing to do with reading our messages so stop trying to sideline us by stating that whatsApp will not be reading our messages, which would be the least of our worries

 

We do NOT give permission for Facebook to have access to our contacts / mobile devices.


FRIDAY 30 APRIL 2021 let us all deactivate our whatsApp accounts for 1 hour sometime between 6PM & 11PM.

 

WhatsApp messenger give us, your users, the choice to consent or not to at our own free will
