UAE Telecommunications Regulatory Authority Alerted WhatsApp Users

The UAE Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has issued an advisory note to the WhatsApp users in the country. The alert announced on Thursday, conveyed the users across the country to be aware of the amended service and privacy policy of the popular messaging platform and to be thoughtful while choosing the newly issued advisory for users. The most popular social platform has updated its terms of service and privacy policy since Tuesday.

The users were given a time frame until 8th of February 2021 to accept the changes to policy or to forgo their use of the social media app if they decline. “The page that currently appears to WhatsApp users is an update on the terms of the Privacy Policy that regulate the operation of the application and must be approved by those who wish to continue using the application,” said a notice posted by the TRA on its social media accounts.

The new policy updates will alter WhatsApp’s service and the system of how the company used to process users’ data as of date. It will also change how businesses can use Facebook-hosted services to store and manage their WhatsApp chats. And also the company has announced that, the update would change how it partners with Facebook to offer integrations across the tech giant’s products.
