What are the questions answered in this post?
- If accepted, is it able to disagree with the policy?
Why does WhatsApp have to bring new Terms & Conditions?
Why does WhatsApp want to make an income through advertisement?
WhatsApp Messenger is a free application with a huge amount of user count of 2 billion. After Facebook, Inc took over the company, they wanted to make revenue from WhatsApp like their other subsidiary applications. But, users don’t have any problem with having advertisements in their daily using application; the real problem is what they are expecting from us to continue using the app.
Unlike their other subsidiary applications, WhatsApp Messenger isn’t a social media app; it’s a private messenger. So, if they want to advertise in the app, they require your personal chatting data with your friends, families, or close ones for more precise targeted advertisements in your app. Here, your privacy gets affected by accepting the policy.
Will your account be deleted if you haven’t accepted the policy?
As for now, it’s like a two-way road: one is to accept the Terms & Conditions; the other one is to jump over to other messaging apps. Some may prefer to use it as a monthly subscription rather than accepting the policies. But, till now, there are no signs of that idea from the parent company. If you wanted your data to be highly secured, then what’s the best solution suited for you? Then, you have to jump over to other messaging apps like Signal, Telegram, etc., asap as anytime WhatsApp can take down the main features, or you may have to lose your data and contacts.
WhatsApp Messenger was a useful app to send messages, share photos, files, videos, voice calls, video calls, and keep statuses and has a wonderful interface to use it. But, the new Terms & Conditions have threatened your privacy and forced you to accept it, and advertising in it makes the app more unusable to the users who seek their privacy. So, the best option to evade this is to jump over to other messaging apps and transfer your data from WhatsApp to your new messaging app and leave a message to all of your contacts to contact you through your other account.
