Twitter boss Elon Musk has put Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg on notice by warning the public that his company’s WhatsApp messenger “cannot be trusted.”
Along with Facebook and Instagram, WhatsApp is one of the platforms owned by Zuckerberg’s Meta.
On Tuesday, Twitter’s director of engineering Foad Dabri tweeted that he’s discovered suspicious behavior from WhatsApp.
Dabri posted a screenshot showing that WhatsApp has been accessing the microphone on his cell phone, without his permission.
In the Twitter post, Dabri suggested that WhatsApp had been secretly listening to him.
