New Delhi: WhatsApp has issued a clarification over reports of WhatsApp users alleging leak of their private messages with family and friends on search engines.

The Facebook-owned messaging service has said that the change in its recently revised policy “doesn’t affect privacy of messages with friends or family”.

This is the second clarification to be issued by the cross-platform messaging service, which had earlier said the update would only affect business accounts.
