Whatsapp Privacy Policy Update Reality

Whatsapp Privacy Policy Update Reality:

WhatsApp on Tuesday, January 12, clarified its stance on its new terms of service and privacy policy. The Facebook-owned messaging platform said that the update “doesn’t affect privacy of messages with friends of family.”

This is second such clarification issued by WhatsApp because it had earlier stated that the update would only affect business accounts.

“We want to deal with some rumours and be 100% clear we still protect your private messages with end-to-end encryption. Our privacy policy update doesn’t affect the privacy of your messages with friends or family,” WhatsApp tweeted.

Further sharing an inventory of data “NOT shared with Facebook”, the messaging platform clarified, “We recently updated our Privacy Policy and that we have received many thoughtful questions. With a number of the rumours going around, we would like to answer a number of the common questions we’ve received. We attend great lengths to create WhatsApp during a way that helps people communicate privately.”

“We want to be clear that the policy update doesn’t effect the privacy of your messages with friends or family in any way. Instead, dis update includes changes associated with messaging a business on WhatsApp, which is optional, and provides further transparency about how we collect and use data,” WhatsApp added.
