Viber CEO, Djamel Agaoua, wrote an op-ed, “Do The Right Thing”, technology.mb.com.ph/2019/04/1… , with a proposed Privacy Pledge and calling on Facebook and the rest of the industry to join him.

While it is a start, the fact that he did not include “NO collection of personal data”, and “NO collection of METADATA, including, but not limited to location”, just goes to show that unnecessary data collection is still the norm for his company, and the encourages the rest of the industry to continue doing surveillance.
