WhatsApp Users: Let Facebook Recover Your Data?

WhatsApp’s 2 billion active users face a dilemma. Last week WhatsApp announced new Terms of Use (ToS) and a new privacy policy. The “key updates” say WhatsApp users must agree to the new terms and guidelines by February 8, 2021 – or the app will be disabled. The new policy actually comes from Facebook, which owns WhatsApp. On the one hand, the movement is intended to enable companies using WhatsApp to use services hosted by Facebook, for example to store and manage their WhatsApp chats. By clicking I accept, you agree to the new terms and privacy policy, which will take effect on February 8, 2021. After this date, you will have to accept these updates in order to continue using WhatsApp, ”the message said. Many users who have become dependent on WhatsApp have accepted this in return – a form of “I give my information in exchange for you so you can use your app for free”. . However, many were disappointed with the move and resigned themselves to the fact that Facebook’s “data entry” from WhatsApp is a done deal, which will happen anyway.
