WhatsApp updated policy sparks mass ‘exodus’ of users
“I delete #WhatsApp, switched to #Signal. #Privacy is more important than anything else” Noman, a neteizen tweeted after receiving a pop-up update on his handset.
Users in Kashmir either delete WhatsApp or limit its use even as the company said it does not read or share personal chat messages with parent company Facebook.
“We want to be clear that the policy update does not affect the privacy of your messages with friends or family in any way. Instead, this update includes changes related to messaging a business on WhatsApp, which is optional, and provides further transparency about how we collect and use data,” the company said in an FAQ released on Tuesday.
