Last Wednesday Google announced a messaging app called Allo. The app includes Google Assistant, an artificial intelligence program which makes live suggestions as you chat. It’s going to give tough time to WhatsApp and
Facebook messenger in near future.
Industry experts believe this IA text predictive app will store the user data on Google servers and upon demand, it may be handed over to law enforcement agencies. According to experts, Google must not store the data on its servers because data centers are accessible by government agencies.
Former NSA agent Snowden urged people not to use this app over privacy concerns.He tweeted about Allo, “app that records every message you ever send and makes it available to police upon request.” Google defended its privacy stand, saying users can opt for a more secure “incognito” mode if they prefer. In the incognito mode, it will not store any data.According to Google all messages in Allo will be encrypted.
