Full-Page Ads On Day 2: WhatsApp Tries To Allay Privacy Concerns Again


WhatsApp's clarification on its privacy policy was splashed across newspapers in full-page ads this morning as more and more people flocked to rivals Telegram and Signal after changes to its terms. WhatsApp titled the ads as WhatsApp respects and protects your privacy. The ads shows that, We want to be clear that the policy update does not affect the privacy of your messages with friends or family in any way. Instead, this update incudes changes related to messaging a business on WhatsApp, which is optional, and provides further transparency about how we collect and use data. WhatsApp cannot see your private messages or hear your calls and neither can Facebook: every private message, photo, video, voice message and document you send your friends, family and co-workers in one-on-one or group chats is protected by end-to-end encryption. It stays between you. WhatsApp cannot see your shared location and neither can Facebook. This is the third effort to clarify by the cross-platform messaging and Voice over IP service provider since it revamped its privacy policy stating it will share data with its parent company Facebook.
