WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned messenger that professes to have privacy coded into its DNA, is giving its 2 billion or more users an ultimatum: agree to impart their personal information to the social network or delete their accounts.
With new changes to the policy, users will now be compelled to agree to offer their information to Facebook to keep utilizing their account or as another option, delete their accounts as WhatsApp says.
“After this date, you’ll need to accept these updates to continue using WhatsApp. You can also visit the Help Center if you would prefer to delete your account and would like more information.”
Individuals who object to the new terms and policy ought to think about using an alternative messenger.
