The panic created among the public was tried to be controlled by WhatsApp when they stated that the new terms and policies only refined the experience and enhanced prime business of Facebook i.e advertisement. The collaboration might help the company as they could keep the track of how often people use their services. Also the facebook stated that this would make world more connected and open.Though the company has maintained the feature of end to end encryption the users are still in doubt as far as the privacy is concerned.
To overcome this dilemma of privacy the user is left with two options.
When the policies are updated for the user there appears a dialogue box of new policies saying “Share WhatsApp account information with facebook.” Don’t blindly click on agree, simply uncheck it and you are done.
If you’ve already whizzed through the terms box, no need to panic you can still change it within 30 days of change.
- go to settings.
- go to account.
- Uncheck share my details with Facebook.
However the Facebook company might continue to have access to user data for infrastructure development and support system services purposes and not for ads.
