Daum Kakao to Shorten Storage Period

[su_heading size=”20″]Daum Kakao is planning to shorten its chat storage period to two to three days after customers have worried about government monitoring.[/su_heading]

Daum Kakao, the operator of South Korea’s most-used mobile messenger application Kakao Talk, said yesterdayay it will shorten its chat storage period from this month. It is hoping that its move would end persisting claims that chat histories on the messenger can be monitored by the government. 

The company said that in a bid to protect users’ information, Daum Kakao will only save chat histories for two to three days starting this month. Daum Kakao currently saves chat histories on servers for around a week. 

It added that Daum Kakao puts highest priority on personal security. IT also said that Kakao Talk has never received any request (from the government) for real-time monitoring, which is impossible even with warrants.
