WhatsApp said on Friday that now the new policy will be launched in May instead of February. In the updated policy, it was focused that users can message with the business account and this does not affect the personal conversion. End-to-end encryption in personal chats will remain intact. “This update does not increase our ability to share data with Facebook,” WhatsApp said in a statement.
The company said, ‘Not everyone is shopping on WhatsApp right now, we think that in the coming time more users will shop on WhatsApp and people need to know about these services.’
Facebook has been rolling out the Business Tool on WhatsApp for the past nearly a year. The company aims to increase revenue from platforms such as high-growth WhatsApp and Instagram. Let us know that Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014 for $ 19 billion but the company has been slow to monetize it.
Let us know that some personal data of WhatsApp users, including the user’s phone number and IP address, is already shared with Facebook. WhatsApp said in its statement, ‘We do not know who is calling or calling. We cannot even see the location you have shared nor do we share your contacts with Facebook. ‘
