   The feature of "CLICK TO CHAT FEATURE" gives permission to the users to create a unique link from their phone number to the plain text. And the real issue comes here that the link created connect the phone number with plain text didn't have any robot.txt file in the server root which can't stop the GOOGLE or other SEARCH ENGIE BOTS from CRAWLING and INDEXING THE LINKS. JAYARAM also said that about 300,000 peoples phone is revealed in the GOOGLE SEARCH and they could be found by searching "site:wa:me."
