Amid Data Breach Row, Congress Deletes Android App from Google Playstore



The Indian National Congress’s official ‘WithINC’ Android application was today deletedfrom the Google Play Store. This detail was highlighted just hours after Elliot Alderson, a French vigilante hacker, went public with allegations of the Congress Android app mismanaging user data.

A Google Search for the term 'With INC’ did return a link for the app’s Play Store landing page, indicating that the app was up on the Google store up until recently. (That link led to a “Sorry! This content is not available in your country yet” page on the Google Play Store.)


According to the hacker Congress site was not using any SSL certificate and the data was transferred on a http protocal which is unsafe.
