WhatsApp Moves Forward with its Controversial Privacy Policy

Facebook. Inc’s WhatsApp has a new privacy policy which was opposed by the people. The company decides to move forward with the privacy policy.

The company will allow the users to read the privacy policy at its own pace and will also display banners for the users to understand the privacy policy.

In January, the company announced it is preparing a new privacy policy in which allows it to share partial information with social networking sites, Facebook, and its proprietary firms.

This privacy policy sparked the global outcry and sent the users to rival apps like Telegram, Signal, and others.

The company delayed its launch as it clarified to its esteemed users about the implications of new updates.

The updates will affect only business communication and would not pose any threat to personal conversations like content shared by a user with family and friends, including personal messages and calls, shared attachments, or locations.

According to the latest policy, user agreement to sharing Facebook information is essential. User data stored on FB servers are accessible for business purposes.

This led to user notions that all the information stored on WhatsApp archives is also public, which led to user unrest.

WhatsApp said that Safety, security, and integrity are an integral part of our Services. We use the information to verify accounts and activity; combat harmful conduct; protect users against bad experiences and spam, and promote safety, security, and integrity.

Additional privacy features are added, such as setting messages to disappear and controlling who can add a user to groups, giving the users added layer of privacy.
