WhatsApp reviews its terms of use in Europe

WhatsApp operated on a change of its terms of use in Europe, following a record fine of 225 million euros.

This was imposed in September by the Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC). The one responsible for the whole of the European Union felt that the conditions of use were not clear enough.

An adjustment for the conditions of WhatsApp in Europe

The text of the new terms of use for WhatsApp in Europe is much longer than before. Messaging provides more details to users regarding data collection and use. The company also explains in more detail how it protects data shared across borders for its global service and the legal grounds for data processing.

WhatsApp is the property of Facebook, now renamed Meta. With the update, users in Europe will see a notification at the top of their conversations list that will lead them to the new information.

The record fine of 225 million euros did not please WhatsApp in any case.

“No matter where you are in the world, we protect your personal messages with end-to-end encryption, which means no one, not even WhatsApp, can read or listen to them,” she says.
