The social media company Facebook owned mobile app WhatsApp recently came with a new policy where they said that the data of users will be shared by their parent company Facebook. If users want to continue using WhatsApp, then they will have to accept it or else they won’t be able to use the app anymore.
The company also launched another feature named WhatsApp pay through which people would be able to pay money to one another via UPI. After all the backlashes and criticism, WhatsApp has clarified that their privacy won’t affect the payment product.
There was a post on their website regarding payment policies which said that the payment related information might be shared with service providers in order to send payment instructions to banks. Yesterday, there was an update regarding that which read that Facebook will not have any access over such information and it won’t be able to access any of the UPI transactions in any way.
