The messaging application also issued a clarification that the update includes changes that are related to messaging a business on the platform. Here are some other updates:

WhatsApp cannot see any of the private messages of the users and neither can Facebook. It does not keep the logs of the calls on the platform. WhatsApp cannot have an access of the shared location and the groups will remain private. WhatsApp also announced that the messages can be disappeared. The users can also download their date on WhatsApp. "We don't share this data with Facebook for ads. Again, these private chats are end-to-end encrypted so we can't see their content" shared WhatsApp in the Security and Privacy section on the official website. WhatsApp suggested the users to change their message settings to disappear from the chats after sending them and this can be done through the additional privacy feature.

This is the second time WhatsApp issued a clarification to put an end to all the speculations. WhatsApp has over 400 million users in India alone.
