WhatsApp attempts to explain the privacy policy to users

WhatsApp has a new plan to explain its controversial privacy policy. The new announcement explains how users will read the new policy and how they will deal with business and personal messages with different privacy standards.

The new privacy policy mainly relates to WhatsApp messaging services and the data that these services can access.

Most WhatsApp messages are encrypted using end-to-end encryption. This means that only people themselves can access it.

However, WhatsApp also allows users to send messages to companies, and these messages do not offer the same level of protection.

The data contained in commercial messages can be used for commercial purposes, for example b- Using Facebook to target ads, some of which are also stored on Facebook's servers.

WhatsApp's privacy policy attempts to clarify these changes, but many users interpret it as a waiver of their known privacy rights.

Prior to its release on May 15th, WhatsApp plans to give users the option to view the new privacy policy on the app.

The company tried to reassure users of the WhatsApp feature. WhatsApp now includes a banner that you can click to view an explanation of the new strategy.

The company said: It will remind users to read the new policy and agree to the policy of continuing to use the application.

According to the platform, the company pays for the right to use WhatsApp to reach customers. This is one of the ways the company makes its platform freely available.

The new policy sparked global turmoil and users turned to competing apps. WhatsApp was asked to postpone the release to May, stating that it is focused on business activities and will not affect personal conversations.

At the time of WhatsApp's announcement, Facebook blocked all message content in Australia. This prompted a senior UK lawmaker to describe the move as an attempt to intimidate democracy.

According to reports, in 2016 WhatsApp began sharing certain personal information such as phone numbers and account photos with Facebook in order to improve friend recommendations and promote through the app.
