WhatsApp is sending ToS alert to users again: Here’s why
WABetaInfo, the blog that tracks development in WhatsApp, reports that WhatsApp has started sending in-app alerts to its users informing them about its new terms of service. The company, however, is showing this alert only to WhatsApp users who haven’t accepted ist new ToS already. This means that if you had accepted its ToS back in February when the company first started sending these alerts, you will not be asked to accept them again. This is true for both iOS and Android users.
Additionally, the company is clarifying that despite the change, all chats on WhatsApp will remain end-to-end encrypted and while it is making it easier for users to chat with businesses, part of which might be shared with Facebook owing to the separate terms of service that businesses have, it is making it optional for users to opt into this service.
Additionally, it is giving users more information as to how businesses manage their chats and the changes that the company is making to its platform.
