WhatsApp will ease you into accepting its privacy policy with a banner

Ivan Mehta Ivan MehtaAndroid 12s first developer preview arrives — heres whats newMore TNWAbout TNWStay tunedLast month, when WhatsApp introduced its new privacy policy through a pop-up banner on the app, people freaked out. It turned out to be a communication disaster and users started a mass exodus to other apps such as Telegram and Signal. The Facebook-owned companys initial plan was to roll out this policy by February 8. However, because of the backlash, it had to postpone this update to May 15. WhatsApp is not changing its schedule or privacy policy. But its introducing a banner in the app to make you understand it better. You can tap on the banner to read the explainer, learn more, and accept it. You can just choose to read at the moment, but youll eventually have to accept it by May 15 to keep using the service. If you dont want to accept these changes, your account will be disabled.pHeres what WhatsApp wants you to know: your chats are encrypted and the company cant see them and it wont share all of your contact and data to Facebook. Well, ideally I want the app to tell me what it IS sharing with Facebook. You can read what WhatsApp is changing in our explainer we published last month. Mark Zuckerberg has already kicked off his vision of integrating all messaging apps by linking Messenger and Instagram Direct. However, if and when the company begins integrating WhatsApp, we would need to know what were giving up for that feature. In its blog, WhatsApp also explained that the new privacy policy paves way for businesses to operate on the platform. Thats how the company will make money and keep the app free for end-users: We also think its important people know how we can provide WhatsApp for free. Every day millions of people start a WhatsApp chat with a business because its easier to do so than placing a phone call or exchanging emails. We charge businesses to provide customer service on WhatsApp – not people. Some shopping features involve Facebook so that businesses can manage their inventory across apps. We display more information [note: this will link to what you have in the attached] directly in WhatsApp so people can choose if they want to engage with businesses, or not. Bottom line is that WhatsApp is not changing its privacy policy, but its communicating the terms better in hopes that people who are in doubt might not switch platforms. Did you know we have a newsletter all about consumer tech? Its called Plugged In – and you can subscribe to it right here. Published February 18, 2021 — 21:00 UTC
