Will all Android phones be able to have WhatsApp from May?

WhatsApp issued information in which it reveals the date and the conditions under which its new privacy policy will be applied.

The deadline for this is Saturday May 15, and at this moment, given the proximity of the date, we want to address the conditions requested by the application owned by Facebook, although, as we said yesterday, it will not mean account deletion for those who do not accept the terms.

WhatsApp privacy policy

First of all, let us remember that this is not a new topic, since since February the controversy had arisen in which it was revealed that WhatsApp would use user information for advertising purposes.

The information that would be taken by the company for advertising campaigns would be from WhatsApp Business, since messages between users are end-to-end encrypted, while WhatsApp messages are on Facebook servers.

Until a few hours ago WhatsApp has maintained that as of May 15 the new policies will apply and that who does not accept them, could only receive calls and notifications (but only for a short time). In other words, whoever does not accept the use of data for advertising purposes, would have to resort to another instant messaging application, since the company could delete the accounts in the future.

That is not the case now, so even if Facebook insists on approving the privacy policy, we will not have the account canceled if we do not.

If you want to know much more about the privacy policy of the application, you can access the following link where you will find all points broken down.

Either way, it’s a good time to decide whether or not to continue in the app. In case you don’t give the Facebook proprietary tool a chance, you should give it a try Signal, the instant messaging application recommended by Elon Musk and Edward Snowden, or telegram, where we have a news channel at t.me/wwwhatsnew
