whatsapp privacy policy

WhatsApp has detailed what will happen to users who won't agree to new privacy changes through a mail which explains that it will slowly ask such users to comply with the new terms in order to have full functionality of WhatsApp till May 15.

The CEO has been asked to furnish responses to the government’s query regarding the privacy, data transfer and sharing policies, sources said today.

Independent cybersecurity expert Rajshekhar Rajaharia reported on Twitter that info from WhatsApp Web was being leaked to Google search, the phone numbers are allegedly part of the URL being indexed by Google.

The decision to postpone the privacy update has been taken due to "misinformation causing concern" among people, the company said.

Signal App said it is seeing a huge surge in new users that it is witnessing delays in phone number verifications of new accounts. 

The app is available on Android and iOS. Unlike WhatsApp, the Signal Private Messenger app is also available on the iPad, and users can also download and install the Signal app on Windows, Linux and Mac, like WhatsApp.

WhatsApp informed users about the changes made in the privacy policy and terms of service.
