Still using WhatsApp?

There was a blaze of adverse publicity when owners, Facebook, announced a change of privacy policy in Jan 2021. WhatApp was a great product, but having bought it (valuing each user at $55!) Mark Zuckerberg is keen to get a return on that investment. That comes from gathering more data about you by changing the privacy policy. 

The change was postponed by a few months until the fuss died down, then after some advertising, which failed to address the fundamental concerns, reintroduced the policy changes.

Advice: change to Signal, it does a similar job in terms of providing secure messaging but preserves your privacy. Read about the implications and make your own decision. https://whatsappToSignal.co.uk 

I’m one of the millions who have closed their WhatsApp accounts and can’t say I miss it.
