“Our commitment to your privacy isn’t changing. Your conversations are still protected by end-to-end encryption, which means no one outside of your chats, not even WhatsApp or Facebook, can read or listen to them,” said WhatsApp in a detailed statement. However, the platform has added new features as well.
“Safety, security, and integrity are an integral part of our Services. We use the information we have to verify accounts and activity; combat harmful conduct; protect users against bad experiences and spam; and promote safety, security, and integrity on and off our Services, such as by investigating suspicious activity or violations of our Terms and policies, and to ensure our Services are being used legally,” it added.
