Not reading your messages: WhatsApp assures users via status messages

Jan 17, 2021 14:30 IST

Facing massive criticism from users globally, including India, over privacy concerns after a recent privacy policy update, WhatsApp on Sunday shared its own status on the messaging app to assure users of its commitment to their privacy.
In a set of four status posts, WhatsApp tried to allay concerns over privacy. The first message on the status read: "We are committed to your privacy". The other three messages were: 'WhatsApp can't read or listen to your personal conversation as they are end-to-end encrypted', 'WhatsApp can't see your shared location', and 'WhatsApp doesn't share your contacts with Facebook'.
The Facebook-owned company landed in a soup after it informed users about changes in its terms of service and public policy, through an in-app notification last week. Users had till February 8 to agree to the new terms in order to continue using the platform.
