A war of words between Reliance Industries’ Gautam Chikermane and hacker group Anonymous India broke out on Twitter on Thursday as the latter accused Jio Chat, instant messaging app rolled out by Reliance Jio, against violation of right to privacy of about 5,00,000 users of Reliance Jio Chatapp in India.
Anonymous India has alleged that the app is sending data to Chinese servers. “There is nothing equivocal about it. Over 500k mobile data taken by China made Reliance Jio app. Hosting by Chinese too,” the twitter handle @opindia_revenge tweeted. It further tweeted: “One IP was pointing to USA. Two were of Godaddy hosting most likely. One is of a company in Beijing China.”
