More importantly, WhatsApp has clarified that for most users nothing will change. “The update does not change WhatsApp’s data sharing practices with Facebook and does not impact how people communicate privately with friends or family wherever they are in the world,” the company further said.
The instant messaging reiterated its stance over privacy and said it will inform users about the changes in detail. “WhatsApp remains deeply committed to protecting people’s privacy. We are communicating directly with users through WhatsApp about these changes so they have time to review the new policy over the course of the next month,” added WhatsApp in the statement.
