While many users are planning to exit the application and are turning to other alternatives like Telegram and Signal.
Here are the 5 major concerns related to the latest update:-
- As we all are aware, Facebook bought WhatsApp in 2014. Earlier, updating its policies, it gave the users a choice to use the application without sharing the data with Facebook, however, this is not the case this time.
- The two platforms (WhatsApp and Facebook) will enable the companies to better understand user preferences and targets with ads and services by enhancing its algorithms.
- The new policy allows Facebook to access the commercial interactions and user shopping activity to target ads and customise content.
- WhatsApp has nearly 5 million accounts and any transaction or interaction done on the platform will be accessible to those businesses and its third-party service providers.
