WhatsApp will issue a better way of explaining its new policy, which aims to empower Facebook to manage the chats with businesses on WhatsApp- not that Facebook will access personal chats.
“Whether you communicate with a business by phone, email, or WhatsApp, it can see what you’re saying and may use that information for its marketing purposes, which may include advertising on Facebook,” it explained.
Of course, users can choose whether or not to communicate with a business on the app.
The first post about its updated privacy went terrible with wording, which implies that users have no say whether to share their data with its parent company Facebook.
Users were convinced enough of the new policy to be the case due to Facebook’s reputation in abusing personal data. This led to users switching from WhatsApp to rival messaging apps, such as Signal and Telegram, which also offer privacy features.
