WhatsApp says latest update does not change its data-sharing practices with Facebook

Facebook-owned WhatsApp on Saturday said its latest update — which has received criticism from a multitude of users globally — describes business communication and does not change its data-sharing practices with the social media giant.

Rival platforms like Signal and Telegram are reportedly seeing a surge in downloads in the wake of the development.

It also stated that users will have to agree to the new terms and policy by February 8, 2021, in order to continue using WhatsApp’s service.

This kickstarted a spate of conversations and memes on the internet over WhatsApp’s alleged sharing of user information with Facebook.

Earlier this week, WhatsApp had started rolling out in-app notifications to users about an update in its Terms of Service and privacy policy regarding how it processes user data and partners with Facebook to offer integrations across the social media giant’s products.
