People are widely using WhatsApp as a private messenger where they trust on WhatsApp about their privacy.
WhatsApp has been mentioning that it cares about the personal data of its users and it always states conspicuously about the privacy policies.
Earlier this month, WhatsApp has mentioned very clearly that it will share its data with its parent company Facebook.
WhatsApp is also sending in-app-notifications for its users to agree with its term. The major concern is that users have no other option than to accept these terms if they want to use WhatsApp services in the future.
This is a situation of great disappointment for the users who are concerned with their privacy as they will have to leave this app (that is being used by the majority of people) that will cause a disturbance in their online socialization.
In other words, all these changes are merely a part of the service improvement of either WhatsApp or other Facebook Companies. Anyhow, this new year’s change in the privacy of WhatsApp has produced a lot of ambiguity.
What type of data is WhatsApp going to Share with Facebook?
Boost in the Usage of Other Private Messenger
Possible privacy threat in WhatsApp has led to boost the usage of other private messengers such as Signal, Telegram, etc. Following the change in privacy policies of WhatsApp, CEO Tesla, Elon Musk urged the people to use Signal.
The signal app has taken the advantage of the gap that has been created. Therefore, the number of users of the Signal app has also increased insanely.
Signal has implemented many of the new features (such as Signal has increased the number of video conference call participants to 8) that we found only on WhatsApp to attract the people.
