“No account will be deleted or WhatsApp jobs lost on May 15 due to this update,” the Facebook-owned company said in a statement released on Friday.
Among the features, reading or sending messages can be limited.
Facebook and WhatsApp, the most used messaging app worldwide, have repeatedly rejected information that this update will allow access to messages and geolocation of users and groups.
This update in privacy policies has raised suspicion and misinformation about Facebook’s use of information such as contacts and conversation history.
Due to these disputes and ambiguities, WhatsApp extended the deadline for accepting privacy policies from February to May.
