Key points to cover:
- What will happen in case of rejecting new policy?
- Is the new policy dangerous?
- Is the policy a big deal?
What if you don’t abide by the policy 2021?
Is this new policy is a big deal
Yes, the policy is a big deal as it will induce a major change in the business accounts. Talking about the normies, it is nothing to worry about, and neither it is a forced decision. The company clearly mentioned that if the user has issues with the update 2021, he/she can easily deactivate their WhatsApp account. Though the company has already made it clear that the users’ dms are safe, and their calls remain end-to-end encrypted, their contacts are not shared with Facebook.
In The End…
The synopsis would be that most of the apps that we use on a daily basis, have been collecting our data slyly. All of this information is hidden behind the long terms and conditions to which I think most of us do not pay heed and accept it blindly. So, maybe it’s high time for us to think about whether we want to choose convenience over privacy as the choice is all ours!
WhatsApp is struggling with several court cases – because of this new privacy update. It recently defended itself saying that other tech companies and apps like Zomato, Ola, BigBasket, Truecaller, Aarogya Setu, Zoom have similar privacy policies and collect even more private data.
