WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging applications with over 2 billion users. However, the company has been under criticism about its updated privacy policy as users struggle to determine the risks of continuing their use of the service.

The service has lost millions of users as they have moved to other applications like Telegram and Signal, which has lead to WhatsApp delaying the implementation of said privacy policy in order to “counter any confusion” regarding the new terms and conditions.
