WhatsApp Is Re-Launching Its Controversial Privacy Policy Update


WhatsApp is slowly re-launching its new Privacy Policy update. In January, when the update was first announced, there was massive backlash among users as they worried that WhatsApp would share their personal information with its parent company, Facebook.

Many users were outraged by the privacy policy as they felt that if they didn't accept it, their accounts would be deleted. As a result, masses of users switched over to Telegram and other more stringently data-private messaging apps. This caused Facebook to run full-page newspaper ads explaining the update, and then eventually pause it indefinitely

However, WhatsApp is back again with the new privacy policy update, and the company hopes that it will be accepted by users. Unlike last time, there won't be any deleting of accounts, although users will face restricted services on WhatsApp if they don't accept the privacy policy. Eventually, these restrictions will lead to the user not being able to send or receive any messages on the app - which is effectively the same as having an account deleted entirely.

It'll be interesting to see how WhatsApp users react to this update!
