WhatsApp sends messages to customers to update their policies at the beginning of the year. That is where the controversy started. Many claims that the parent company will share customers’ personal information with Facebook in the name of policy updates. Despite repeated notifications in that panic, many did not update WhatsApp’s policy. The company has set deadlines several times.
May 15 was the last day of that period. Many feared that customers would lose their accounts after the deadline. However, a spokesman for WhatsApp said in an email to PTI. In an email reply, he said, “After May 15, the company will not delete the accounts of those who do not update the policy. We will send customer notifications about policy updates in a few more weeks. ”A spokesman for the popular messaging app added that most customers have already updated their policies. Many could not do it due to a lack of time and opportunity.
Last January, WhatsApp sent a policy update notification to its customers. The company has set a policy update deadline of February 8 to use the messaging app. According to WhatsApp, customers will benefit even more after the policy update. Even their ‘integration’ with Facebook will come in handy. However, the customers did not believe the company’s words. They fear that WhatsApp will share customer information with Facebook.
The company opens its mouth with that. According to the company, they have wanted to remove misinformation and confusion from the minds of the customers in the last few months. The company is still committed to protecting customers’ data and personal information. According to the central government, WhatsApp has a huge network in India. The number of users of this instant messaging app is 53 crore. In front of which it is almost impossible to compete with any other messaging app. Data shows that India has the second-largest telecom network in the world. Facebook and WhatsApp have already built a huge market share in the country.
