WhatsApp is trying to solve privacy agreement issues!

WhatsApp lost millions of users to other apps like Telegram, due to the controversial consequences of the new privacy policy. It seems that the company is doing its best not to lose more users.

Verge stated that WhatsApp is using Whatsapp Status messages (stories) in the US and UK to highlight its “commitment to your privacy”.

A similar campaign has been running in India for some time. It will not be enough that now Whatsapp is taking answering confidentiality agreement questions to a global level. A spokesperson for the company said they will use the Stories feature to directly deliver updates on the topic.

The company’s goal is to eliminate the “false information and confusion” surrounding the privacy policy change. Considering this, according to the company, people do not actually have a situation to worry about.

Many posted to cause confusion, implying that WhatsApp will share chat messages and all other information with Facebook.

Although the service stated that it could not read the messages, it was too late. The application has lost many users. Millions of Whatsapp users flocked to chat apps like Signal and Telegram.
