Communication has never been this fast and easy. People can talk to each other from anywhere in the world right from the comfort of their homes through their smartphones, laptops, and desktops. And numerous platforms aid such seamless communication online.
IMO is one important app that aids online communication between two or more people from anywhere in the world. With the IMO app, users can easily make voice and video call right from their smartphones or laptops. When users make these calls, the chat history is not stored by the app.
But the chat history can be stored on the user’s device. This should not be a source of concern if you use the device alone. But if you share the device with someone else then you would likely want to delete the chat history from the device used.
If someone has access to the device you use, they will likely have access to your chat history, then your privacy has been compromised. And so, if you do not want anyone to have access to your chat history, you must delete your IMO chat history.
