WhatsApp делает «обязательным» обмен данными с другими компаниями Facebook

WhatsApp, which recently rolled out an important update for PC users, is a part of Facebook companies from 2014.  The company has so far evolved to co-exist with products, services offered across the messaging and social media platform, Facebook. As an addition, it has updated its privacy policy that makes data sharing with Facebook mandatory.

If you are a regular user of WhatsApp, you must have noticed a full-screen pop-up suddenly showing the information about updated Terms and Privacy Policy. In that case, you are not alone. The company’s new update(as of January 4, 2021) to this makes the data sharing compulsory.

And the cut-off date for that is February 8, 2021, as per the notification screenshot. As you can see below, the company briefly describes three important points:

  • WhatsApp Service and Processing of Data
  • Businesses can use Facebook Hosted Services to store WhatsApp chats.
  • Partnership with other Facebook Products for seamless integration.

In an FAQ, the company also details the kind of information it is sharing with its sisters. In case you don’t know, the subsidiaries of Facebook include Facebook Payments Inc., Facebook Payments International Limited., Onavo, Facebook Technologies LLC, and CrowdTangle.
