All the Muslims in the world are dealing with the very frustrating question that “is the data from Muslims apps are being sold to the US military”? In this article, we will try to give a deep analysis of this question.
Firsts things first that we should try to understand some facts about the apps.
As we all know that these apps sell their user data to advertisers to generate money but some of the non-toxic apps may sell your data to the US military.
Two apps, named “Muslim Mingle” and “Muslim Pro” which has approximately 98 million downloads reported that they have sold their data to the US military. The US military is going to buy data about everyone around the world and especially Muslims who are connected with the Islamic apps.
The company called X-Mode is playing a vital role in these circumstances, the X-Mode company obtains comminuted movement date from the apps before selling it to the contractors and other sources like the US military.
The apps which are mentioned above are indeed used by Muslims and the US military is very popular for drone attacks, which can be done without location data
Muslims reaction to this act:
When Muslims hear this news, the criticism on both the US military and on these apps has started on social media. The criticism also includes how the apps will be sold their sensitive data to harmful sources.
We will share here some tweets in which you can see the views of the people.
