WhatsApp users must agree to share their personal information with Facebook if they want to continue using the messaging service from next month, according to new terms and conditions.
“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.”
Yes, said information includes your personal information. Thus, in other words, WhatsApp users must allow their personal info to be shared with Facebook and its subsidiaries as and when decided by the tech giant. Presumably, this is to serve personalized advertising.
If you’re a user today, you have two choices: accept this new arrangement, or stop using the end-to-end encrypted chat app (and use something else, like Signal.) The changes are expected to take effect on February 8.
