The annoyance of various people Nigeria Mobile Database responds to the fact that, from now on, users will be forced to share information with Facebook Inc.
It’s all about privacy
In other words, they will not be able to choose to delete this option, if they do not agree they will have to delete their account.
The updated policy offers many more details on how the saurian data will be shared with Facebook, the rest of the companies on the platform, and other third-party services.
With this in mind, many people have threatened to delete their WhatsApp accounts, considering that the change in their use policies is a violation of their privacy and violates the security of the handling of their data.
With this context announcement, the movement of many users was to start testing and even moving to other similar services, which in recent days have reported significant growth.
In the case of Telegram, for example, its founder Pável Dúrov, from his Twitter account indicated that 25 million new users joined the platform in the last 72 hours.
The app registered more than 2 billion users in the world during the first quarter of 2020. Its latest figures reveal an increase of 12 percent in users and per month it grew 11 percent.
Along the same lines, Signal indicated that its application was downloaded by 17.8 million users in the last seven days, an increase of 62 percent compared to the previous week, according to Sensor Tower data. WhatsApp was downloaded by 10.6 million users during the same period, 17 percent less.
For WhatsApp, without a doubt, these numbers are not good news. Although the application owned by Facebook remains the leader in the segment, the doubts that its service now generates among users about privacy issues are a warning of a possible significant drop in users.
The platform has sought all possible ways to clear up misunderstandings around its new usage policy so as not to lose more users, an aspect that has been reinforced with the announcement of the work that the platform is doing in a new function.

This tool would seek to replace archived chats in order to improve the privacy and consultation options of users.
According to the information Brother Cell Phone List published by WaBetaInfo, the new option will be found at the top of the chats menu, from where you can select those conversations that you want to read later.

According to the company, this movement seeks to reduce interruptions generated by archived chats, whose notices, until now, are shown as if the conversation was active and out of the interest of users.
