WhatsApp is making big news after it sent notifications which leave users with no option than choosing to "Agree" or they would not be able to use their services. The Facebook-owned organisation has always made sure users get the best features possible, but this time it can be a little tricky. They seek users' permissions that may allow them to share WhatsApp data of its users with its parent company. Here is all you need to know about it.
As part of the Facebook Companies, WhatsApp receives information from and shares information (see here) with, the other Facebook Companies. We may use the information we receive from them, and they may use the information we share with them, to help operate, provide, improve, understand, customize, support, and market our Services and their offerings, including the Facebook Company Products.
This dictatorial approach was something that WhatsApp has never seemed to have used before. But this time, it is either black or white which is quite confusing. WhatsApp Messenger application is amongst the popular platforms which support end-to-end encryption, however, this move could be a step towards a greater openness with its parent company.
