As WhatsApp Deepens Integration With Facebook, Two Alternatives For iOS

An update from WhatsApp urging people to share their personal information with Facebook All You Need to Know About the New WhatsApp Policy Update

In the event that you do not accept the security policies until a deadline, WhatsApp will ask you to delete your account so that you can stop using its service for not agreeing to the terms. WhatsApp, the encrypted messaging app is famous for the privacy services it offers, but now pressuring users to give Facebook access to their personal data.

Paytm founder and CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma on Monday urged the people to leave Whatsapp and use new messaging app Signal.

"We also use information we have to understand how people use our services, evaluate and improve our services, research, develop, and test new services and features, and conduct troubleshooting activities", the company went on to say.

When we are talking about privacy then "Signal" app is the best for it in comparison to WhatsApp.

There is no doubt that there are many versions that are being shared on social networks about the new policies of WhatsApp 2021 and majority tend to be feared by users. Chinese TikTok, who like WhatsApp Facebook's mother had previously been fined, agreed last week to appoint a local representative. This exception is considered by some to be a success and a result of strict privacy regulations in Europe introduced in recent years.

User concerns over possible violations of privacy have triggered a flight from WhatsApp to alternative applications. "We are communicating directly with users through WhatsApp about these changes so they have time to review the new policy over the course of the next month", the spokesperson added.

The Privacy Policy and its terms and conditions of use (also dated 4 January) nicely stitch up users. A lot of them migrated to Signal, an encrypted messaging app.

It was revealed yesterday, however, that WhatsApp is making changes to its privacy to remove the opt-out option completely, at least outside of Europe. Twitter head Jack Dorsey also praised Signal's growing popularity. This now includes: A user's account registration information (like phone number), "transaction data, service-related information, information on how you interact with others (including businesses) when using our services, mobile device information", and the user's IP address.
