No WhatsApp account will be deleted on February 8: WhatsApp delayed new Privacy policy

1 year ago

Facebook Inc’s WhatsApp is in the news since it has announced its new privacy policy for users. Recently the company claimed that it wouldn’t be sharing any personal data with Facebook, still, users are transiting to other apps like Telegram and Signal.

On Friday, WhatsApp made an announcement in which it is mentioned that “We’re now moving back the date on which people will be asked to review and accept the terms. No one will have their account suspended or deleted on February 8. We’re also going to do a lot more to clear up the misinformation around how privacy and security work on WhatsApp. We’ll then go to people gradually to review the policy at their own pace before new business options are available on May 15.”

WhatsApp takes back the new privacy policy for now and will review it again in May.

WhatsApp keeps on updating its feature and that’s why to make communicating with a business secure, better, and easier for everyone, they support over 175 million people who message a business account every day.  While not everyone shops with a business on WhatsApp today, we think that more people will choose to do so in the future and its important people are aware of these services. This update does not expand our ability to share data with Facebook, it said.
