BJP has refuted Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s allegation that data of users is being shared through Narendra Modi App with foreign companies.
The party said today that data is being used only for analytics using third party service, similar to Google Analytics.
It said, analytics on the user data is done for offering users the most contextual content.
BJP also said, the App gives access to users in ‘guest mode’ without even any permission or data.
It clarified that the permissions required are all contextual and cause-specific.
It said, this ensures that a user gets the best experience by showing content in his language and interests.
The BJP said that by making such allegations, Mr Gandhi truly shows why he and his party have zero knowledge of technology.
In a series of tweets, the party alleged that Mr. Gandhi is so rattled by the Cambridge Analyitca expose that he tries to divert attention from it daily.
