WhatsApp to launch new feature for users

Popular messaging application WhatsApp has intended to execute its new privacy policies, which ultimately triggered the users of the app.

The new WhatsApp link policies also resulted in a digital mass-exodus, forcing WhatsApp users to shift to more secure apps such as Signal or Telegram.

Many users freaked out about their chats and data being shared with tech giant Facebook.

However, after the provoked hassle by users, the application pushed the dates for accepting the privacy policy to May 15.

It also reiterated what data it will be taking from its users, assuring them that their private chats with friends and family will remain protected by end-to-end encryption.

“The information we share with the other Facebook Companies includes your account registration information (such as your phone number), transaction data (for example, if you use Facebook Pay or Shops in WhatsApp), service-related information, information on how you interact with businesses when using our Services, mobile device information, your IP address, and may include other information identified in the Privacy Policy section entitled ‘Information We Collect’ or obtained upon notice to you or based on your consent,” WhatsApp said in a statement.

WhatsApp in its FAQs about the new privacy policy has stated that users have until May 15 to admit the new terms and conditions. If they fail to do so, the app will start to restrict its features for the users.
