What is WhatsApp’s new security policy?

According to the new policy, WhatsApp is forcing its users to accept new security policies if they want to continue using the app in the future.

Failure to do so will result in the deletion of their account.

WhatsApp now has the right to share information about you with Facebook, Instagram, and other companies. This data includes the user’s phone number on which the WhatsApp is registered, as well as the IP address (location of the Internet connection), mobile phone or laptop information, including its model and company, and a few technical things, including how long used, status, groups, payments or business features, profile photos.

The new policy could affect users who do not use any social application other than WhatsApp, such as Facebook and Instagram because their metadata will also go to companies that previously only had WhatsApp. So, if you are on other social platforms, it is not a problem for these users.
