WhatsApp to go ahead with the privacy policy update

Even with all the advances in technology, how can we know that our data is safe? With an update to WhatsApp’s privacy policy, it seems like the messaging app won’t be storing any more data than they already do.

WhatsApp’s privacy policy update

WhatsApp announced the privacy policy update on August 28th, 2018. The update will come into effect on October 26th, 2018. This includes a new tool that will allow users to remotely delete messages from their conversations after a certain period of time. As a result of this update, WhatsApp will be able to provide better insights, improve its products and use data for more specific services.

What has the privacy policy change meant?

WhatsApp has announced the latest updates to its privacy policy, this will impact all users of the service. This means these updates will apply to people who use WhatsApp on Android and iOS as well as those who use it via desktop or laptop. The company has said that any data previously shared with Facebook will now be shared with its parent company, WhatsApp Inc.

Pros and Cons

The update will allow the company to use the information they already have on their users to improve products. It might also make it easier for them to add new features in the future. On the other hand, this means that WhatsApp will be able to continue collecting data on its user’s behavior and how they use it in order to design better tools for them in the future.

In a matter of hours, WhatsApp made a huge change to its privacy policy update. It has been reported that this update will allow the app to give out more data about users. These changes have not been confirmed yet by WhatsApp, but people are concerned about this potential change because it could lead to misuse of their personal information.
