There had been a lot of opposition to these new terms in India and interestingly, WhatsApp has the most number of active accounts from India. The majority of the users are furious with this new policy which will enable WhatsApp to share user’s data with its parent company, Facebook. However, WhatsApp has claimed that this policy update doesn’t risk the user’s data. As per the company, the update is linked only to improve the business accounts’ user experience.
Notably, this new policy is not being implemented in Europe, as the continent follows unique laws regarding user’s data. Let us inform you that WhatsApp already shares various information with Facebook, such as the IP address of its users. It also pre-shares information about purchasing/buying of products through the platform.
