Even some users started uninstalling the instant messaging app ‘WhatsApp’ from their favorite apps’ list and drop popularity among most installed apps.
As per the previous schedule, this change will be implemented or come into effect on February 8, 2021, the Facebook-owned company said.
“We are here to answering to anyone. WhatsApp has been more a trustable and convenient platform whatever is shared between friends and family stays between them. Whatsapp was built on a simple idea that is we called confidentiality. This means we will always protect your personal conversation with end-to-end encryption, so that neither WhatsApp nor Facebook can see these private messages. It is why we don’t keep logs of who everyone’s messaging or calling. We also can’t see your shared location and we don’t share your contacts with the Facebook,” the company further added.
The blog post reads, “We are now moving back the data on which people will be asked to review and accept the terms”.
“We have made this change only for business perspective so that they can restore their chat and expand their businesses it doesn’t harm anyone otherwise”.
WhatsApp now says it is now going to postpone the implementation of privacy update by three-month in order to better communicate both the changes in its new policy and its long-standing privacy practices around personal chats, location sharing, and other sensitive data.
No one will have their account suspended or deleted on February 8, as we are going to do a lot to clarify the misinterpretation regarding WhatsApp privacy standards. The company released a separate blog post on Friday trying to clear up the confusion.
