WhatsApp intends to make its new privacy policy optional soon

Facebook-owned WhatsApp first published its updated terms of service in early February of this year, which aims to unify its service across the platform. Although, the messaging platform was widely criticized due to the updated policy as the users were required to adopt the policy anyhow instead their WhatsApp accounts will get deleted from the platforms.

Although, WhatsApp users will be delighted to learn that the messaging platform will shortly bring out a new update that will render the company’s updated privacy conditions optional for users. Users will not be compelled to acknowledge the new privacy rules, per recent news shared by WaBetaInfo. The users will be given a chance to refuse the new policy as per the recent update.

Users will be given two options: ‘Not now’ and ‘Review.’ The users can choose the desired option as per their need. Although, users who are dealing with corporate accounts should have to be concerned as the users who seek to use the cloud provider to convey messages to WhatsApp Business accounts will have to examine and approve the revised terms and conditions, according to the source.

A screenshot from the update has also been posted, revealing that if a user attempts to send a message to the business account, the app will prompt them to accept new terms and conditions. Apart from that recently, WhatsApp has also made a statement following the new update in which it states, “Facebook’s Business Chat is handled by a secure corporate service. Examine and approve the WhatsApp upgrade to chat with businesses”.

Moreover, WhatsApp is also supposed to unveil a WhatsApp beta upgrade for both Android and iOS users shortly. Although, no exact date has been confirmed yet by the company.
