Recap: WhatsApp’s Privacy Policies
Many people misread the warning as thinking that WhatsApp or Facebook will soon be able to see what users share with their family and friends. There were also memes floating around in which people believed that everything and anything said on WhatsApp was visible to company workers, which was false.
For those who are unaware, Ravi Shankar Prasad, India’s Law & Justice, Communications, Electronics & Information Technology Minister, revealed in February that the country has over 53 crore WhatsApp users. This means that WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps in India, with YouTube being the closest competitor with 44.8 crore users. With its vast user base, it would have always been difficult for WhatsApp to make a major change like the one we’re addressing here.
One of Facebook’s biggest errors, in our opinion, was released the latest update as an in-app warning, which should have been conveyed and clarified to users first. After all, it’s the duty of Facebook and WhatsApp to clarify these notifications clearly.
What’s New In New Policy!
Facebook is improving its e-commerce capabilities with the latest terms and privacy policies. WhatsApp hopes users will be able to connect to more companies on the platform to get stuff done, which can be easier than phone or email contact. “You can contact businesses to get details, ask questions, and purchase products.” “It is entirely up to you if you chat with a business on WhatsApp, and you can block or erase them from your contact list,” the firm claims.
What Will Remain Same After May 15?
The latest update means little to existing WhatsApp users. End-to-end encryption is used for chats and phone calls, ensuring that the personal conversation remains private. Also you can get more information at Live Enhanced.
