WhatsApp returns to the charge. In January, the messaging application, owned by Facebook, announced the future implementation of an update that would introduce a collection of private data. Update that must necessarily be accepted, otherwise you will not be able to use WhatsApp services in the future. Unfortunately, things did not go smoothly for the app, which must have suffered some controversy and a significant migration to competitors like Signal forcing it to postpone changing its T & Cs. But the latter is still relevant today.
Indeed, the messaging explains today in a post on his blog that this update concerns the possibility of chatting with companies and purchasing their products, a use that you can activate or deactivate yourself. WhatsApp also recalls that it cannot read your discussions or listen to your calls, in line with its “end-to-end encryption defense”. In the coming weeks, banners will appear to explain this update, which will still have to be accepted in order to continue to benefit from the messaging system. Will this be enough to reassure users?
