So now the question arises can I keep using WhatsApp without accepting the new privacy policies?
Is it safe to accept the new WhatsApp privacy policies?
The changes to the policy are more related to the business message. It is not yet clear to everyone how businesses and Facebook will use it. So what one can do is if you feel staying on WhatsApp is essential for you and is not sure what to do, what one can do is accept the new privacy policies. You will know if the information shared by WhatsApp to Facebook is causing too many privacy breaches like too many ads etc. You can permanently delete your account with WhatsApp any time after that. WhatsApp has the feature of deleting the account and all the data that is related to that account. You can opt not to stay on WhatsApp later whenever you wish to realize it was a mistake to accept the policy.
Those who don’t have any compelling reason to stay on WhatsApp can avoid accepting the new terms and delete the account by visiting the WhatsApp settings. While deleting the WhatsApp account, there is an option to export your chat data from WhatsApp and store it to import it to other messaging apps.
