WhatsApp optional acceptance of ToS

Η WhatsApp announcement continues to concern many as the company tried to pass a new privacy policy that allowed some information to be made available on Facebook. Following the initial reactions, the company sought to clarify its position, and chose to delay the implementation of the new policy. Eventually, however, the new Terms of Service were released as an option, except in one specific case.

Although there will always be doubts about sharing information with Facebook, especially if you do not use Facebook directly, the main reason for the recent dispute between WhatsApp and the public was "we decide and we order".

He said little about the exact purpose of the change, the nature and limitations of this data sharing policy. After a lot of delays the company tried to review and finally give up these terms.

WhatsApp initially stated that it planned to limit functionality over time until users accepted the new reality. The harsh criticism forced the company to renew the new ToS (from Terms of Service) and eventually make it optional, except for messaging companies that use cloud providers. In this case, users will have to agree to these terms before they can even send messages to the business.

This is a policy that WhatsApp probably had to follow from the beginning, because it concerns the real purpose of the new privacy policy or at least the purpose stated by the company.
So regular WhatsApp users should not worry about the new privacy policy. There is currently no known date for announcing these changes, but hopefully an announcement from WhatsApp will stop the controversy.
