With the new regulations of WhatsApp going to come into effect from February 8, 2021, there has been a growing controversy. Experts accuse WhatsApp that it is the only app in its category that collects the most data from users, but amid this ruckus and uproar, WhatsApp has said that their new terms of service will not affect the chat privacy terms. WhatsApp has said these things through a press release.
A WhatsApp spokesperson said that this update will not disturb the privacy of users. The company still commits to the privacy of users. The new update is not going to change the data sharing between Facebook and WhatsApp.
If a user does not accept the new terms by February 8, their account will be closed. Experts say that this is a direct attack on the privacy of people and WhatsApp is forcing people to obey the conditions. According to the listing on the Apple App Store, WhatsApp already takes 16 kinds of data from its users.
