Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp users face sudden technical issues in India and across the globe where people are fear whether it is hacked.
WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook seem to have had technical problems since the beginning of the day. The interruption seems to be global, the media and tweets reveal that the problem is widespread in Europe, the United States, and Africa.
In India, although WhatsApp’s online chat interface, Instagram posts, and stories are active, the transfer of any kind of media, including audio files and images, seems to be stopped for now.
File submission is always active, suggesting that this could be a server error that prevents users from downloading content shared with them.
So far, Facebook Inc., which owns each of these applications, has not explained why the interruption should have occurred or if it could be a cyber attack.
At 8:30 pm ET, WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram have been inactive for almost an hour. The exchange of SMS on WhatsApp is still possible, other regions of the world, such as Scotland and Zimbabwe, confirm in their reports that, in fact, WhatsApp is completely decomposed in Europe and the United States.
In the absence of an official update for the time being, it is impossible to know when the functions will be restored.
Facebook took on Twitter to the people what just happened in a tweet:
There are many assumptions, possibilities like a hack or maybe the technical problem, it’s better you not to use Facebook Instagram WhatsApp until it gets fixed because we don’t know what exactly happened.
These are the times you feel like your things should not be public, and your data under someone else control, hence try to minimize sharing your personal information to these apps, definitely, they will have a backup but something happens wrong and the next morning entire data got deleted who is responsible right?
So use these platforms in a limited way, where your privacy should be your first priority that technological advancement, In India recently we got Right to Privacy under our constitution.
