WhatsApp, however, has said that users’ messages and calls are still ‘end-to-end encrypted’, meaning that no one, including WhatsApp, can read them.
PTA has shared the long explanation of WhatsApp in its press release as if it is satisfied with the explanation and that users do not have to worry about privacy.
This means that WhatsApp can monitor your conversations with such accounts and will be able to check your preferences or dislikes.
WhatsApp’s new policy not for US and European users
It is also clear that the company that owns the WhatsApp is notorious for leaking Facebook user data and has been fined in Europe and the United States.
But the PTA’s presentation of the WhatsApp explanation in a press release gives the impression that a watchdog in Pakistan is satisfied with the explanation of WhatsApp and Facebook.
Because the press release does not say whether the PTA is satisfied with this explanation.
