WhatsApp plays a vital role in the lives of its numerous users. A significant number of us use it, from family groups you cannot leave without literally offering yourself up to a tank of piranhas to that annoying close friend who only communicates through GIFs, there’s always something in there to keep a great many of us hooked.

But there are some aspects of the app that has been rendered untrustworthy because of the dark storm called ‘Invasion of User’s Privacy’ that Google appears to be carrying with it nowadays. Can it be true? Would Google be guilty of this accusations? All you need to do is go to the Google Maps for proof.

Opening the Google Maps and going over to the My Timeline option allows you to see where you were and where you have been and how long it took you to get there. Google will also accurately predict how you went there. But the part you are not aware of if you are the kind that never turns their location services off is that Google can track your whereabouts even if you have your location services off.

Technologically impressive? Yes, it is. Gross invasion of our privacy? Well, there are some specific details about our lives that we would prefer to keep to ourselves. The fundamental right to privacy is our fundamental human right.

In addition to location data, Google stores our WhatsApp data as well. All the chats we have ever had, this includes large media files will not be stored in your Google drive any longer. What this means is that all your data will not be stored on Google Drive any longer. All of your data will be saved without using up the limited allocated 15GB of Google Drive space that you have access to.

But because we face the threat of privacy infringement and data theft that is always present, the data that you store on the cloud is never completely safe. So if you wish to remove WhatsApp data from Google Drive, you will need to follow the steps below:

  1. Access the Google Drive website on your browser’s URL (https://drive.google.com) and then log in to your Google account.
  2. If you are accessing the URL to Google Drive through your smartphone, click on the top left corner on the browser page and then pick the ‘Desktop version’.
  3. Click on the Gear icon that is available on the top-right corner of the app.
  4. Access the Settings and then look out for ‘Manage Apps.’
  5. Scroll down till you find the WhatsApp messenger icon.
  6. Wait for a while till the “Hidden app data” size appears below the WhatsApp messenger.
  7. Click on Options and then click on the option called Delete hidden app data.
  8. Before deleting the data, the Drive will give you a chance to rethink about your choice of deleting the data, and you will get the following pop-up message “xGB of hidden app data from WhatsApp messenger will be deleted from Drive.”

You can now go ahead and click on Delete to confirm your choice.
