Grade and Review of

PPGS Grade B

Overall Grade: B


The privacy policy of WhatsApp largely meets the PPGS criteria and provides a satisfactory level of privacy protection. The policy is written in clear and understandable language, making it accessible to users. It comprehensively covers the types of personal data collected and clearly explains the purposes for collecting this information.

In terms of user control, the policy allows users to access, delete, and modify their personal information. It also provides options for users to opt-out of certain data collection and sharing practices. However, there could be more explicit instructions on how to exercise these rights.

The policy clearly outlines when personal information is shared with third parties and mentions the user’s ability to provide or withhold consent for such sharing. However, it could provide more specific details about the limits on third-party sharing.

The policy describes the security measures in place to protect user information and highlights the company’s commitment to maintaining data security. However, it could provide more specific information on the security protocols used.

Regarding notification of changes, the policy explains how users will be informed of significant privacy practice updates through email or updates on the website.

The policy is written in a relatively clear and concise manner, but it may require some effort for an average 9th-grade United States student to understand certain technical terms and concepts.

Overall, the WhatsApp privacy policy satisfactorily addresses essential privacy concerns, but there is room for improvement in some areas for better user control and clarity on certain aspects of data sharing and security measures.

Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.

If we don't act now to safeguard our privacy, we could all become victims of identity theft.

Anyone who steps back for a minute and observes our modern digital world might conclude that we have destroyed our privacy in exchange for convenience and false security

I don't see myself as a hero because what I'm doing is self-interested: I don't want to live in a world where there's no privacy and therefore no room for intellectual exploration and creativity.
