WhatsApp users will have to agree to share their personal data with Facebook if they want to continue using the messaging app after next month.
If users don’t agree to the new terms by February 8, 2021, they will lose access to their accounts.
Connection information, such as your mobile operator or internet service provider, will also be shared, as will a phone’s battery level and signal strength.
For WhatsApp users in Canada and the United States, the app’s Terms of Service contain a “binding arbitration provision.”
By using the app and agreeing to its terms, users agree to resolve any disputes it may have with the app, “including those relating to, arising out of, or in any way in connection with your rights of privacy and publicity” without a judge or jury.
