Since its launch in September 2019, the MPL app has been downloaded over 100,000 times. But can we trust it?
MPL is a mobile app that allows users to play mobile games and earn rewards. It is developed by Times Internet, the digital arm of The Times of India Group.
The app has been criticised for its lack of transparency and for being a potential privacy risk. Some users have also complained about not being able to withdraw their earnings.
Times Internet has denied these claims and says that the app is safe and secure. It has also said that it is working on improving the withdrawal process.
So, can we trust MPL? We asked some experts for their opinion.
cybersecurity expert, says that the app does not seem to pose any immediate threat. However, he adds that users should be cautious about sharing personal information with it.
“MPL could be collecting data about users which could be used for targeted advertising or other purposes. I would recommend that users do not share any sensitive information with the app,” he says.
Another expert, privacy lawyer, says that the app could be in violation of data protection laws.
“The terms and conditions of the app state that it can collect and use personal data. However, it is not clear how this data will be used or how it will be protected. This is a concern,” she says.
So, what should you do if you’re using MPL?
Experts say that you should be careful about what information you share with the app. You should also keep an eye on your earnings and withdraw them as soon as possible.
If you’re concerned about your privacy, you can always delete the app and uninstall it from your phone.
