Alert! WhatsApp Groups links are Indexed on Google Search

On Google you can get an answer to any questions. You suddenly have a question in your mind and Google may not answer it. Apart from the questions, there is something that Google search is providing. This can prove to be harmful to WhatsApp users. A report says that Google is indexing private links to WhatsApp groups. This allows anyone to join these groups through Google search. However, Google is making modifications to put a stop to this.

According to a report by Motherboard, the incubation links to WhatsApp Group chats are being indexed by Google. However, when we searched on Google while writing the news, we did not receive the incubation link in the result. Motherboard’s team found some groups using Google search result. At the same time, as an NGO recognised by the UN, he had also made a group of people who had access to the phone number and name of all users in the group.

WhatsApp’s reverse engineer Jane Wong has said that Google has 4, 70000 results in the above case. It has inwhite links to WhatsApp groups. A user named Jordan Wilden tweeted on Twitter and also informed about it. He wrote that if you think your WhatsApp group is safe, it is not so. 

Google’s public search liaison Danny Sullivan has tweeted that other open web pages, including Google, make a list. Any site allows public listing URLs.
