WhatsApp group chat invite links and user profiles get indexed again on Google search

Just another day for chat privacy being exposed, WhatsApp rolled out its new privacy update a few days ago, which forces users to share their data with its mother company Facebook. However, now WhatsApp group chat invite links and user profiles get indexed again on Google search.

The privacy breach was reported on Sunday by internet security researcher Rajaharia, and according to his tweet, WhatsApp group chat invites links, and some user profiles appeared in search results, which means anyone was able to join secure group chats and view both chats and linked phone numbers without any trouble.

However, chat giant addressed this issue very quickly, and it seems now indexed chat group results have been removed from Google search.

When it comes to privacy its a big issue when something like this happened, and these issues can make users move to other chat apps like Signal and Telegram
