WhatsApp Turns 12!

WhatsApp turns 12 this year! It has been the leading messaging provider for a very long time now. And it continues with that, having more than 2 billion users worldwide turn to it every month! 

Ever since WhatsApp decided to change its privacy policy, some of its users have been wondering whether or not to accept the change. And WhatsApp decided to give more time for everyone to make up their minds.

What Will Happen If You Don’t Agree to the Changes?

The privacy policy change was extended from the 8th of February to the 15th of May. This gives time for people and businesses to think things through and make their decision. WhatsApp remains transparent when it comes to the changes they will apply. And more importantly – they remain just as safe and secure. 

In case a user or business decides not to accept the new privacy policy, they will not be able to use WhatsApp’s services. Their accounts will be in the “inactive” graph and will be deleted within 120 days. This is what usually happens to inactive accounts. 

To make sure you continue to take advantage of all of WhatsApp’s benefits, you need to agree to the changes, when the time comes. In the meantime, it is best to get to know the new terms and how they are going to affect your business. 

Why Should You Continue With WhatsApp?

WhatsApp continues to use end-to-end encryption, which means they don’t have access to your data. They also stated that in a tweet last week for their 12th birthday  – “We will continue to be committed to your privacy with end-to-end encryption. Always and forever.”

They will continue taking care of all of their users providing them with the best services and keeping their data safe. They are also developing new features for stronger security such as biometric authentication.  So let’s cheer for them! Happy Birthday, WhatsApp!
