It is not that it has ever been among their plans to stop applying the changes in WhatsApp privacy that they had planned for this 2021, but it is true that they decided to postpone the process a time to try to calm users, while explaining better what this modification consisted of. We do not know if that time will have been used for something, but WhatsApp returns to the load with the changes in privacy and now confirms that it will show a banner above the list of conversations explaining everything. The only sure thing we know is many have decided to transfer their WhatsApp conversations to Telegram and even give Signal a chance.

We have to go back to the month of January when WhatsApp updated its terms of use, forcing users to accept them if they wanted to continue using the application. In that change of conditions there were several changes, but the most important is that we were allowing several things with respect to our data, such as that Facebook could use the information to show us ads.

With these changes, the chats we make with companies that use the new Facebook ad system can be used to send us personalized ads. Our great advantage by residing in Spain and being protected by the General Data Protection Regulation of the EU, neither WhatsApp nor Facebook can cross-access each other’s data. In fact, the company confirmed that:

“There are no changes to data sharing practices in the European region (including the UK) arising from the updated Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. For the avoidance of any doubt, it remains true that WhatsApp does not share user data from the European region with Facebook in order for Facebook to use this data to improve its products or advertisements ”.

Try to clarify things so that everyone accepts the changes

Although this novelty in the privacy policy does not affect users in the EU, WhatsApp go ahead with the introduction of changes. The big problem is that it has not been able to explain it well or that some have taken advantage of the situation to attack its business model. Be that as it may, now they are going to try again and have explained in detail what the process will be like over the next few weeks.

Therefore, in the coming weeks we will see a banner that will appear on the list of conversations by WhatsApp. That one will have a link so that we can calmly read all the details about the changes. After a while, they will begin to remind us that we must review and accept these updates to continue using WhatsApp.

On this subject, they emphasize that for WhatsApp to be free, they charge companies and not users for using WhatsApp to provide that customer service. Some purchasing functions are integrated with Facebook so that companies can manage their inventories through the applications. This is indicated directly in WhatsApp so that people can choose if they want to communicate with companies or not.
