WhatsApp has agreed to be more transparent about its privacy policy changes after complaints from European consumer bodies. The messaging service will explain changes to users’ contracts and how these could affect their rights. WhatsApp also confirmed that personal data is not shared with third parties or other Meta companies, including Facebook, for advertising purposes. The move comes as EU’s lead privacy regulator, Ireland’s Data Privacy Commissioner, directs Meta to reassess the legal basis of Facebook and Instagram’s use of personal data to target advertising in the European Union.
