“WhatsApp was built on an easy idea: what you share together with your friends and family stays between you. this suggests we’ll always protect your personal conversations with end-to-end encryption in order that neither WhatsApp nor Facebook can see these private messages. It’s why we do not keep logs of who everyone’s messaging or calling. We also can’t see your shared location, and that we don’t share your contacts with Facebook,” it added.
“We’re also getting to do tons more to clear up the misinformation around how privacy and security work on
WhatsApp. We’ll then attend people gradually to review the policy at their own pace before new business options are available on May 15.”
