WhatsApp New Privacy Policy For 2021 – Here Is Why You Should Delete WhatsApp And Switch To Telegram Or Signal
By on January 12th, 2021. Gists


WhatsApp has started notifying users that their information will now be shared with Facebook and other apps associated with Facebook.

As Nigerians, you must have seen the new privacy policy notification on your WhatsApp and you would have clicked on I agree without ready the privacy Police at all.

By February 8, everyone using WhatsApp must have agreed to share their personal information on Facebook.

What Information Does WhatsApp Want To Share With Facebook?

If you agree to WhatsApp new Privacy Police for 2021, here is your information that will be shared with Facebook.

1. Account registration information such as your phone number

2. Your profile picture and profile information

3. The phone numbers of your Whatsapp contacts

4. Transaction and payments data such as your ATM card details

5. Location information

6. Information about your devices such as the model, operating system, and mobile network

7. Other information, including your IP address, device operations information, and identifiers

8. Your chats with Business WhatsApp owners (People who hosted their business on Facebook)

What Can Facebook Do With All These Information

According to WhatsApp’s new privacy policy, people’s WhatsApp information will be shared with Facebook to help improve people’s experience using Facebook.

But then, they can do a whole lot more with this information. Imagine someone you’re avoiding has access to all this information about you just by scanning through Facebook or other apps related to Facebook.

Guys, before you agree with the new WhatsApp Privacy Policy, think it through very well.

Also, be aware that this new privacy policy does not apply to people in European Countries including the UK.

See what WhatsApp’s director of policy for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Niamh Sweeney said;

So, what about Africa and the rest of the world. It’s just obvious that Mark Zuckerberg and his companies don’t rate us at all that’s why they feel they can do anything with our information.😡😡

Although, your normal chats with people are still encrypted (Only the sender and receiver can see it).

But if you’re chatting with WhatsApp business owners, just know that the chats are being stored with Facebook.

Meanwhile, Tesla and SpaceX founder, Elon Musk has advised people to switch from WhatsApp to other messaging platforms that respect privacy.

According to him, people should consider moving away from WhatsApp to Telegram or Signal App.

These two messaging Apps have received a huge amount of downloads as people are already preparing to dump WhatsApp for good.

Telegram or Signal App is the safest messaging platform to use now as they won’t share your information with other companies.
