WhatsApp has announced it has opted to delay its new privacy policy changes by three months following user backlash over the company's data sharing practices. "No one will have their account suspended or deleted on February 8. We're also going to do a lot more to clear up the misinformation around how privacy and security works on WhatsApp," WhatsApp said.

After the recent update to WhatsApp's privacy policy in India, 47% respondents said they wouldn't accept it and will look for alternatives to the messaging app. Over 39% respondents said they'll accept the policy as they aren't aware of any suitable alternatives. Around 14% respondents didn't see any privacy concerns and said they'll continue using WhatsApp.
