Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that more than 175 million people use messaging service of WhatsApp business account every day and they are building tools to let businesses store and manage their chats using secure hosting infrastructure if they would like.
"All of these messages are end-to-end encrypted, which means we can’t see or hear what you say, and we never will, unless the person that you message chooses to share it," he added.
"Business messages will only be hosted on our infrastructure if the business chooses to do so. So, we want everyone to know the lengths that we go to protect their private messages. So, we are moving the date of this update back to give everyone time to understand what the update means," Zuckerberg added.
WhatsApp has clarified that users can either accept the new terms and policy or delete their accounts, making this update mandatory for all.
