Turkey investigates WhatsApp and Facebook over data privacy update

Turkey’s competition authority has opened an investigation into WhatsApp over a new update that requires users to share more data with its parent company, Facebook.

The popular messaging platform has been widely criticised for asking its users to agree to the new terms or lose access to their accounts from February 8.

The Head of Turkey’s Digital Transformation Office, Ali Taha Koc, said that foreign applications pose serious security risks.
