WhatsApp updates its terms of use and forces you to something you won't like at all

WhatsApp updates its privacy terms and policies to require the user to exchange data with Facebook, something that will take effect from February 8.

WhatsApp is renewed with the beginning of 2021, and will not do so including new features, but with a controversial change in its conditions of use where it is made clear to the user that certain private data will be shared with Facebook and also with related companies.

As noted in XDA Developers, starting today and over the next few days, WhatsApp users will receive an in-app notice about the new terms of use and privacy policy about three key updates that will affect how WhatsApp, and therefore Facebook, will process all of our data that they could share with other companies.

All these key changes, which you can see in capturing the news, including how WhatsApp will now process our data, how companies can use Facebook-hosted services to store and manage our WhatsApp chats, and how WhatsApp will soon partner with Facebook to deliver deeper integrations across all products.

All these changes take effect on February 8, and if the user continues to use WhatsApp from that date, they will have accepted these new terms of use. If you do not agree to share certain data with WhatsApp as of February 8, you agree not to continue using the app.

If you accept these changes and continue to use the app after February 8, all of this information may be shared with WhatsApp and other Facebook companies: our account registration information including phone number, transaction data, service-related information, information about how we interact with other companies through WhatsApp, mobile information and IP address.

This highlights how Facebook companies can use all of our WhatsApp information to improve their services and experience when using them, send us personalized information and suggestions, invite us to accept integrations with other companies, and a very serious aspect: they could use our data for security purposes, so they may end up sharing your IP with private authorities or companies if necessary.
