Anyone who believes their WhatsApp chats, or any other parts of their digital lives, are 100% private would be quickly disabused of that idea after spending two days with Tal Dilian. He is a 24-year Israeli intelligence veteran and multimillionaire spy-tech dealer who daily intercepts electronic communications, even those that supposedly are encrypted. He and the software tools he sells can recognize your face wherever you travel, listen in on your calls, and locate all the phones in an entire country within minutes, Dilian boasts. Every 15 minutes, he can know where you are, he says.
He obviously intercepts more than just WhatsApp communications alone, but that is the one app he mentions most often when talking about the spy capabilities of the software he sells. Yes, governments around the world buy spy software from Tal Dilian and we can assume he is not the only dealer selling such products.
