Business accounts only
According to the company, the update will only affect messages sent to business accounts on the popular messaging application, which the user adds as an optional feature, according to what was reported by “Business Insider” on Tuesday.
She also explained that the application, which has about 2.2 billion users worldwide, provides comprehensive encryption for personal messages to all users. WhatsApp or Facebook cannot read your messages or hear your calls.
It also added that it does not keep logs of user messages and calls because it considers it a “privacy and security risk.”
She also confirmed that WhatsApp does not share your contacts with other Facebook applications.
As for what the app will share, WhatsApp said it would share data on how you interact with companies on its app.
Also, WhatsApp Business accounts will also be able to use the Facebook store platform to display their products on the popular app. If you are shopping from companies that use the store platform, your shopping activity data will be shared with Facebook and used to display ads on the blue site and Instagram.
