A spokesperson from Whatsapp has asserted that she and her colleagues have only worked toward the benefit of their users, always remaining dedicated to enforcing applicable laws. The group known as Article 29 Working Party has also sent a request to Yahoo enterprise. They have demanded Yahoo’s representatives to act with caution when it comes to their users’ safety. The data breached that happened in the system of Yahoo has threatened the safety of five hundred million users. Their email credentials were exposed.
The system responsible for scanning the incoming emails of their customers was also impaired. Data was shared based on particular data rendered by US intelligence officials. The Working Party required the company to deliver all significant and relevant aspects regarding the data breach to the EU officials. They will be in charge to deliver notifications to all users from the database whose accounts were affected.
EU authorities also engage in cooperating with every investigation or request raised by every data protection authority that will occur. The members of the Working Party challenged Yahoo to deliver information regarding the legal basis on which this company has operated.
