WhatsApp is the most used messaging app in India, and a lot of people around the world use this app for messaging as well. WhatsApp has made communication a lot easier, and has been able to bridge the gap between people, no matter where they are in the world. WahtsApp was founded by Brian Acton and Jan Koum in 2009, as a free messaging app, and it was later bought by Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Recently, all of us have seen a policy update on WhatsApp, and naturally, a lot of us would have pressed on the Agree button, without reading a bit of the information that was listed out. However, this is where the real catch is, as WhatsApp’s policy updates are definitely something to look out for.

Now that Facebook owns WhatsApp, every single message, and every single thing that you do on WhatsApp is directly wired to Facebook, which means that Facebook can read and access all of your messages and all of your data, even more than it could previously.

Facebook’s business model is based on marketing, which means that nothing on Facebook is really free, and this is the exact same thing that is going to happen with WhatsApp now. Facebook will now be able to access all of your information, like your phone number, your contacts, status info, messages, transactional and payment details including your bank account details, the kind of phone you use and your location.

This means that Facebook can essentially be able to move funds from your bank account to any other account, and track you, no matter where you are. This also means that a targeted marketing strategy will be done. All of this means that we have to be more careful before accepting the new policy changes. In case you are not okay with these changes, then WhatsApp has asked for you to delete your account, at the bottom of its policy updates.
