UAE issues WhatsApp alert for users

Users have until February 8 to accept the changes to policy

The UAE Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) on Thursday issued an advisory for users of instant messaging platform WhatsApp.

The Facebook-owned platform has been sending users an in-app notification about its updated terms of service and privacy policy since Tuesday.

Users have until February 8 to accept the changes to policy — or forgo their use of the social media app if they decline.

“The page that currently appears to WhatsApp users is an update on the terms of the Privacy Policy that regulate the operation of the application and must be approved by those who wish to continue using the application,” said a notice posted by the TRA on its social media accounts.

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.
