After putting off the supposed rolling out of the feature by three months and publishing full-page advertisements in Indian newspapers, the latest act from the company was assuring their users via their own ‘Status’ feature.
WhatsApp has pushed four new messages where the company has given privacy assurance to its users. WhatsApp users woke up to the four messages displayed on their status from a contact named ‘WhatsApp’. The messages were
‘We are committed to your privacy’
‘WhatsApp can’t see your shared location’
‘WhatsApp can’t read or listen to your personal conversations as they’re end to encrypted’
‘WhatsApp doesn’t share your contacts with Facebook’
