WhatsApp declares a new privacy policy and everybody got suspicious about their new terms and conditions.

People are assuming that all the personal chats, location and chats will be shared with WhatsApp Headquarter. Many people have already deleted their WhatsApp and moved to a new chat messenger. Do you really think this world can accept new chat messengers already?

Is it the end of WhatsApp?

The rumours spread to such an extent to which WhatsApp replied and shared a picture explaining  more about their privacy policy that are mentioned below:  

  1. WhatsApp Privacy Policy Protects and Secures Your Private Messages.
  2. WhatsApp Privacy Policy cannot see your private messages or hear your calls and neither can Facebook.  
  3. WhatsApp Privacy Policy does not keep logs of who everyone is messaging or calling.
  4. WhatsApp Privacy Policy does not share your contacts with Facebook.  
  5. WhatsApp Privacy Policy cannot see your shared location and neither can Facebook.
  6. WhatsApp groups remain private.
  7. You can set your messages to disappear.
  8. You can download your data.  

But do you really believe it's safe to agree to the new WhatsApp Privacy policy?  

People believe that WhatsApp is using Mischievous choice of words.

There is a difference between: Whatsapp can’t see your shared location vs tracking your location.

Whatsapp further posted that We want to address some rumors and be 100% clear. We continue to protect your private messages with end-to-end encryption.
