Since WhatsApp has announced the implementation of the new privacy policy (WhatsApp Privacy Policy), most users have decided to leave the platform. Most of the users are opposing this policy update. However, WhatsApp has presented its explanation regarding this. At the same time, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has defended the update of WhatsApp’s privacy policy. He said that it is aimed at making “optional experience for business in the app” easy.

According to WABetaInfo, an update website about WhatsApp, Zuckerberg said in a statement on January 28, “We are building new features to make business related transactions easier in WhatsApp.” We are developing tools to store businesses and manage their WhatsApp chats using our secure hosting infrastructure. If you don’t like it, then avoid sharing business with cloud providers, there is no need to avoid WhatsApp. ”

According to Zuckerberg, WhatsApp is in the “process” of updating its privacy policy to make these optional experiences available. Zuckerberg also clarified that the privacy of chats with friends and family of a user will not be changed by the new policy.

He said, “All these messages are encrypted end-to-end, which means that we cannot see your messages unless the person to whom you send the message shares it himself.”

Zuckerberg said that if a business account user chooses our privacy option, then their business messages will be hosted only on our basic structure. We are extending the date of this update so that everyone has time to understand what the update means. Zuckerberg said that more than 175 million people message on WhatsApp business accounts every day.
