WhatsApp using Status Messages to update about the privacy policy

WhatsApp updated its privacy policy last month and that built a lot of tension among users. The messaging platform has now started using its Status Updates page to reach Indian users on the platform. One of the statuses mentions “One thing that isn’t new is our commitment to your privacy.” Another status reads, “WhatsApp can’t read or listen to your personal conversations as they’re end-to-end encrypted.” The last date to accept the updated privacy policy has been extended to May 15.
