Have you heard about the new privacy policy of WhatsApp? What is in it that everyone is discussing? WhatsApp has given a new privacy policy update and asked users to agree to the changes before Feb 8th.

WhatsApp highlighted that the new policy will impact the user interactions and business interactions which may be the same as Facebook’s hosting services.

The new privacy policy is not in use now but many people showed their unhappiness with ‘accept or leave’ conditions which WhatsApp has added. Further, it led to misunderstanding of the privacy policy and so many shared misinformation about the privacy policy.

Due to these issues many people moved to other apps like signal, telegram which has more privacy. As a result Signal came to number one position on App store and third position on Play Store.
