Whatsapp has become indispensable for most smartphone users.

But that could change soon. Already at the beginning of the year Whatsapp for a storm of indignation. Something new will soon pop up on the phone.


Whatsapp collects a storm of indignation

At the beginning of 2020, Whatsapp angered many users. © www.de24.news The  reason for this was the new terms of use for the messenger. Every user should agree to this. This should result in a certain data sharing between Whatsapp and Facebook. Outside the EU, users then share their account data with the entire Facebook family. A logical step – at least for the company, since both belong to the same group.

This is Whatsapp:

  • Instant messaging service was founded in 2009 in Santa Clara, USA by Jan Koum and Brian Acton
  • In 2014, Facebook Inc. bought Whatsapp for $ 19 billion
  • Applications are available for all common operating systems: Android. iOS, Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile
  • Beta testing of Whatsapp Business started in Germany on January 25, 2018
  • Whatsapp Payments is currently only available to users in India, but will soon be available in other countries as well

However, this met with incomprehension among many Messenger users. Many looked for alternatives. Whatsapp responded and moved the date for accepting the terms of use back. Now, according to “onlinemarketing.de”, more should happen.

Whatsapp: Messenger would like to inform about new terms of use

Many users were surprised by the new terms of use of the messenger and wondered what data is now being passed on. Does the group have access to the private messages of WhatsApp users?

 The  messenger now wants to use the remaining time until the users have to accept the terms of use for clarification.

Whatsapp: Banner to clarify the terms of use

As reported by “onlinemarketing.de”, a banner will appear in the app for this purpose in the next few weeks. This should explain the new terms of use. Among other things, it should be made clear that the messages on Whatsapp will continue to be encrypted end-to-end. In addition, contact lists should not be shared with Facebook. Information about the new terms of use can also be found on a landing page.

 The se would be introduced because Whatsapp will introduce new functions in communication with businesses. Whatsapp users have until May 15th to accept the terms of use. It is at least questionable whether the Whatsapp educational campaign can convince more users to stay. (gb)
