WhatsApp once again justifies its scandalous privacy settings, but is not even going to amend them.
WhatsApp said that users misunderstood the news of the upcoming update. The information was allegedly distorted. One of the reasons why this happened is the description of innovations in ambiguous language. The company is working to improve the information content and ease of perception of internal news. For example, WhatsApp now uses the status feature in its app to share important information with users.
This is just one example of WhatsApp’s conflicting wording over the new privacy terms. But WhatsApp continues to assure that mutual understanding between the company and users will be restored. To do this, in the coming days, a kind of banner will appear in the application, which will provide more information about upcoming updates.
WhatsApp also reached out to users who have already started switching to other communication platforms such as Telegram and Signal. The company said it was sympathetic and noted that some of its competing apps could read messages from their users. WhatsApp will work to make the app as reliable as possible, even if it needs a little personal data from its subscribers to do so.
