Be careful! Social media platforms know your sexual life!

SEP 13 (WTN) - Privacy is very important in itself. There was a time when people paid a lot of attention to privacy and did not tell anyone about personal life. But over time, the ideology of privacy is slowly disappearing. After internet and smartphone revolution, users are gradually losing their privacy through social media. At one time, the works which were considered very private are being promoted on the social media.

It has been observed that apps and social media users are making their personal lives public in enthusiasm and unawares, they are paying the expense, or may have to suffer. For your information, let you know that the social media users who used to interpose their personal works in apps, those works are no longer secret. Yes, the world famous social media platform Facebook is slowly getting to know your personal secrets. Facebook has made such a dent in your privacy that Facebook knows when users have made physical relationships, or then used contraception.

If you are also accustomed of interrogating your personal secret for giving and receiving information on the app, then for your information, let you know that Facebook Tracker app is sharing all your sensitive data with Facebook. According to the media information, a recent research by Privacy International has revealed that ‘Maya’ and ‘MIA’, two of the most popular apps to track women's periods, have shared personal information of its users with third-party apps and websites through the Facebook software development kit.

For your information, let you know that period tracker apps named ‘Maya’ and ‘MIA’ help women to track their period cycle. Not only this, women also use these apps to know the right time to conceive. Women enter their personal information in these apps which are facing serious allegations of sharing this information with social media platforms like Facebook.

Yes, when users enter their personal information to the app, then developers of period tracker apps named ‘Maya’ and ‘MIA’ update some of the features of the apps through Facebook's software development kit. After doing so, they collect data from users. The apps used to share the collected data with Facebook in such a way that it could target those users, and show them the ads as per their choice. That is, as soon as users enter their personal information in these apps, all their personal information was being sent directly to Facebook through software development kit.

According to the information, an app named ‘Maya’ was allegedly sharing the details of the users with Facebook even before it was signed for the privacy policy. Through some of the features present in it, the mood of the user was also being guessed, and this entire information was then shared with Facebook. After this, users were shown advertisements according to their mood. According to experts, doing this helped companies to advertise to the users as per their choice.

So as you have read that users are sharing their personal information in the apps with a sense of ignorance and curiosity, which they have to pay for their privacy being leaked. We recommend that whenever you download an app first read its term and condition carefully.

On the other hand, if you are sharing your personal information in the app, then first read carefully about the privacy policy of the app that it will not share the information you are giving with anyone. On the other hand, if this is being done by the app, then you can choose the option of not sharing your information by going to the privacy of the app, if there is such an option in that app. Remember, the security of your privacy depends on your intelligence.
