WhatsApp pushed its change in Terms of Service from February 8 to May 15 following backlash from users globally. The Facebook-owned company terms this backlash as “misinformation”, and that it hasn’t properly explained what these changes mean. WhatsApp has now published a blog detailing how it will inform users about the policy change.

WhatsApp in its blog also took a dig at rival apps who have been seeing spike in users after the backlash. “We’ve seen some of our competitors try to get away with claiming they can’t see people’s messages - if an app doesn’t offer end-to-end encryption by default that means they can read your messages,” WhatsApp said in its blog.
