Is whatsapp listening to you?

By RealSamiru

WhatsApp is a popular messaging app that allows users to send text messages, photos, videos, and voice notes. However, some users have raised concerns about the app’s microphone access. They worry that WhatsApp could be listening to their conversations without their knowledge or consent.

WhatsApp has denied these claims, but it is still possible to control the app’s microphone access. Here are the steps on how to do it:

  1. Open the Settings app on your phone.
  2. Scroll down and tap on “Privacy.”
  3. Tap on “Permissions Manager.”
  4. Scroll down and tap on “Microphone.”
  5. Tap on “WhatsApp.”
  6. Choose one of the following options:
  • Allow only while using the app: This will allow WhatsApp to access your microphone only when you are using the app.
  • Ask every time: This will prompt you every time WhatsApp wants to access your microphone.
  • Don’t allow: This will prevent WhatsApp from accessing your microphone at all.

It is important to note that choosing the “Don’t allow” option will disable your ability to send voice notes and make calls using WhatsApp.

By following these steps, you can control WhatsApp’s microphone access and protect your privacy.
