Facebook Messenger Records your Every Activity of Phone

If you have Facebook Messenger downloaded on your phone delete it now. Then you should redownload it and just go through the terms of the agreement. This is utter madness. Those of you who did not know about this should read ahead.

Record and Store all Audio

One thing to be noted is that these days most phones do not have detachable batteries. All the cell phone users who try to download the Facebook Messenger app are required to agree with their terms of service.

This basically allows the social networking giants to use the microphone on your cell phone to record and store all audio at any given time without permission.

This is painful, is not it?

Moreover, now Facebook has made it compulsory for every phone to download the Facebook Messenger to answer the messages you have received on Facebook. You cannot answer them using the Facebook standard application.

Access Pictures and Videos

The terms of service allow Facebook to also access pictures and videos by using the camera of the cell phone at any time without any consent. They can also directly call numbers while incurring charges to your account, again without any permission. If you thought that was too much, read ahead.

Facebook can also go through your call log and read any data that has been stored about contacts on your phone. This also includes the frequency of the communication through email and calls etc. with everyone whom you have ever called or emailed.

Some people have asked this question if it is wrong to send private pictures on Facebook messenger in Saudi Arabia. I would not treat it safe as your Facebook account could be hacked and used by people for the wrong purpose.
