UAE issues WhatsApp alert for users
The UAE Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) on Thursday issued an advisory for users of instant messaging platform WhatsApp.
Users have until February 8 to accept the changes to policy — or forgo their use of the social media app if they decline.
Lose WhatsApp account if you don't accept new changes by February 8
The new policy updates affect WhatsApp’s service and how the company processes users' data. It also changes how businesses can use Facebook-hosted services to store and manage their WhatsApp chats.
Finally, the company also noted the update would change how it partners with Facebook to offer integrations across the tech giant's products.
