I have seen a status by WhatsApp, the American messaging company, posing about “commitment to your privacy”. Haven you saw that? If not, you might see it soon.
The status messages read “One thing that isn’t new is our commitment to your privacy,” along with a reminder that “WhatsApp can’t read or listen to your personal conversations as they’re end-to-end encrypted.”
Taken from sources, a WhatsApp spokesperson said that “There’s been a lot of misinformation and confusion around our recent update and we want to help everyone understand the facts behind how WhatsApp protects people’s privacy and security.”
He added, “Going forward, we’re going to provide updates to people in the Status tab so people hear from WhatsApp directly. Our first update reaffirms that WhatsApp cannot see your personal messages and neither can Facebook because they are protected by end-to-end encryption.”
Because of privacy blunders done by Facebook, users are doubting Whatsapp too. Hence Whatsapp is trying to remove confusion out of user’s minds about privacy.
