Mandatory from February 8, the new Whatsapp T & Cs have caused a lot of ink to flow. As the app is increasingly being uninstalled in favor of its competitor Signal, Whatsapp has chosen to clarify the situation.

We read a message that is reassuring in relation to the sharing of data with Facebook. It is said that neither Facebook nor Whatsapp will be able to read the conversations or listen to the calls of their users. They will also not be able to see the location you share. Whatsapp does not keep the data of the people with whom its users communicate and does not share the data of your contacts with Facebook. They also specify that you have the possibility to set your messages in ephemeral mode and to download your data, and that Whatsapp groups will remain private. This message was also shared by the Facebook France twitter account. But even after these announcements, many still wonder why these new terms should be a requirement, when a refusal to share your data with Facebook was always possible before.
I see that my most seasoned contacts are pushing to quit WhatsApp. So, what do you think of WhatsApp’s policy change with respect to Facebook?
