WhatsApp makes Privacy Policy Updates optional for users



WhatsApp makes Privacy Policy Updates optional for users

WhatsApp updated a controversial privacy policy earlier this year. It has caused privacy-conscious users to switch to Signal, a secure alternative to WhatsApp. 

While it initially decided to limit accounts that don’t accept the new privacy policy, the Facebook-owned company later called off its plan to retain the userbase. 

A tipster, WABetaInfo, discovered evidence that suggests the company is trying a new approach to users who don’t want to accept the new privacy policies.

WhatsApp makes Privacy Policy Updates optional

HoweverWhatsApp will soon inform you that you can use the messaging app to keep in touch with family and friends. What’s the catch? 

According to the report, WhatsApp will soon be available in English. Besides, to chat with business accounts, make sure users agree to the privacy policy that cloud providers used.

“WhatsApp has recently updated its privacy and terms policy. WhatsApp uses a secure service for business chat provided by Facebook

You can chat with the company by reviewing and accepting the WhatsApp update.” 

However, a pop-up will appear. You can either click the “Review” button to review the new privacy policy or tap the “Not Now” button to continue using the app in the usual way. 

It is how it works. WhatsApp users have the option to not chat with business accounts. However, WhatsApp appears to have reached a compromise to address the problem. 

In the next few days, WhatsApp could make an official announcement.

After the privacy controversy over WhatsApp earlier this year, did you switch to Telegram or Signal?
