To address the concern of its users, WhatsApp put up an elaborate blog post on its website. The blog post had different sections dedicated to answering the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) about privacy and security. According to the new policy, WhatsApp users will be required to share their data with Facebook. There have been certain instances when Facebook faced some lapses when it came to securing the data of its users. Because of this, many WhatsApp users raised concerns over the privacy of their data.
WhatsApp was one of those apps or rather businesses that hugely benefitted from the lockdown imposed as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak across the world. A large number of people texted their friends and relatives to check on them. Many resorted to voice or video calls to interact with their colleagues and discuss work with them.
Also, earlier this year, as people across the globe wished their loved ones on the occasion of the arrival of the new year, WhatsApp set a record for the highest number of calls (voice and video) done through it.
Because of the rumors which surfaced recently, many users went to the extent of deactivating or uninstalling the app. The post released by WhatsApp has definitely helped a lot of concerned users feel a sense of relief. Now, it must engage with its users on a regular basis so that they can use the app without feeling worried.
