WhatsApp changes its policies again, now what is it about?

At the beginning of 2021 WhatsApp announced that new changes to its security and privacy policies were coming. An event that was not to the liking of its users, since it was believed that the private information of each one would be exposed and shared with Facebook for advertising purposes.

After the news, the reputation of WhatsApp was affected and even allowed the growth of rival apps such as Telegram or Signal. This same forced WhatsApp to reverse its new terms and conditions. However, for the month of May it was mandatory for everyone to accept the new policies and, if not, the instant messaging application would stop working, not allowing the sending and receiving of messages.

The future change in WhatsApp regarding its security policies

On this occasion, WhatsApp will allow each user to choose whether or not they want to activate the new terms and conditions of the account without suffering serious consequences. This means that anyone who uses the application can decide whether or not to accept the new policies without the fear that their account will be limited, so they can continue to use the app to continue in constant communication with friends and family.

The only drawback with this new rule in WhatsApp is that if a user wants to send a message or chat with a business account belonging to Facebook, they will not be able to do so if they do not previously accept the terms.

“Instead, we will continue to remind users from time to time about the update, as well as when people choose to use relevant optional features, such as contacting a company that is supported by Facebook.”, reported the company owned by Mark Zuckerberg.

In the event that a WhatsApp user finds it absolutely necessary to speak with a company, either for business, to purchase a product or learn more about it, they will have to accept the new policies and conditions of service.
