Whatsapp Clarifies to Keep Functionalities Unchanged
“WhatsApp continues to provide an important way for friends and family to stay in touch during this difficult time. While the majority of users have already approved our update, no one will lose functionality on May 15 if they haven’t yet and we’ll be sure to provide reminders at a later time,” a company spokesperson said.
The statement further added, “We want everyone to know that this update does not impact the privacy of personal messages.”
