If you are a WhatsApp user, it is likely that you woke up this morning to the status of the application.
The users of the application have shared their reactions on adding WhatsApp in their statuses to make announcements.
Some asked how they managed to add themselves while still stating that they value the privacy of their customers. Users say they should have been consulted before this powerful change.
Concerned citizens took to Twitter to disapprove of the app’s new feature; Android users can see the status update and include a reminder of WhatsApp’s commitment to user privacy.
“WhatsApp is now on status!” She reads. “Here we will inform you about new features and updates.”
“One thing that is not new is our commitment to your privacy.”
“WhatsApp cannot read or listen to your personal conversations because they are encrypted from one end to the other,” added WhatsApp.
Although they tried to view this information as a “lifesaver,” many users found it stranger that the application would show them these kinds of announcements about their security and that of their personal information.
WhatsApp with more controversy
As we informed you in Somagnews, WhatsApp has been involved in several controversies after changing the terms and conditions
Many users of the famous messaging application have made the decision to switch to other apps like Telegram or Signal with the intention of having better security.
To avoid this, WhatsApp has tried to educate its millions of users to remove the belief that the application is mishandling personal information.
The application tries to get people to trust its service again and has therefore postponed the deadline to accept the new privacy terms.
