Russian are smart. Nigerians have a wholly different story..
Instead for us to innovate, we are busy copying.
Go to foreign social media spaces and you'll see people testing and scanning the algorithm of that app for loopholes and quirks plus security problems.
Naija na different story.
What if I told you that gbwhatsapp, yowhatsapp and any other Whatsapp clone has your "private" chats stored in their data base? Those private chats and media you send aren't private at all. That's why Whatsapp (original) is trying to shut them down.
But the average Nigerian is myopic. Ask him why he likes GB Whatsapp and he'll say
"It lets me store status updates" or ",it lets me change my font"
Nigerians need to change. An average Nigerian does not read the terms and conditions before installing an app. He's always looking for that "Accept" button undecided

The west... Very hypocritical bunch of fvckers. So because the app originates from Russia, they just had to rubbish it by calling attention to its T & C. Why not come up with a better app than those guys. Must you guys always compete unfairly. That was how The US was throwing childish tantrums everywhere because Huawei was leading in 5G development.

You guys do not have monopoly of knowledge. Everything must not originate from your end. The rest of the world also have smart folks.


I have seen worse T& C from American and European made Apps. If you doubt me, read the terms and conditions on the next app you install from Google play store

Shameless hypocrites!


My observation too. They are bunch of hypocrites.
Facebook that violates privacy policy daily they didn't say anything. They are just morons

Sir ehn, if you know how much of your data that has been collected through through Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Gmail, Android, Google search and whatnots, you will appreciate these guys for being open with their policy. The main issue is "it is from Russia so it must be bad."

This is really funny . Because the faceapp is from Russia the shity Americans have something bad to say about it because it ask for permission to access your photos. Facebook has been doing thesame thing, Google apps has been doing the same thing. Facebook even have AL recognition tools. Google track and keep record of all your activities without you knowing .

Was waiting for this comment.

God bless you.

So I'm supposed to have sleepless nights because a Russian company has my details when I've spent these past years giving my details to American and Western European companies?

What happens to the data I share on Facebook? Or you think the workers there aren't privy to tje information I share on the app? How about Snapchat that is just like this app? Android/iOS have access to all your data. Every bit of it. Where do we start counting from.

Why should a Russian app then give me sleepless nights?

The West is indeed hypocritic. The same way they have been spying on countries for years but are mad at China for allegedly doing the same.

not only Russia have ll your data,they can sell and use it for anything they like. also they can easily know where the PICs were taken from, the environment and what have you.. the most important one is this. whenever they are looking for a crime related evidence..they cab Cross reference there databases to know who it is. CIA, FBI both can use these to identity anyone. so no hiding for anyone who is into crime or sort..
I fell you..the owner of this app would be multi billionaires in dollars. because most top security networks in the world will wanna use there databases to check who their suspect is...

Even Facebook messenger continuously uploads all your phone contacts unknowingly to you, except you are witty enough to deactivate "continuous uploading of contacts". Ever wondered why deleted phone contacts keep reappearing on your device?

Online privacy is a myth created to fool you into a temporary state of comfort. It simply does not exist. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and even Nairaland, you leave a blueprint everywhere. The question you should be asking is what can they really do to you with just a photo? Is your life really that important that Russia would attempt to hack it? Come on, get over yourselves grin grin grin grin grin

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram are bigger culprits. Go to https://myactivity.google.com/ and see something. And that is only for your Google Account o.
