WhatsApp has written in its blog post that we are hearing that a lot of confusion has arisen regarding our latest update. In the blog post, we have further said that we are extending the date. On 8 February, no user’s account will be suspended or deleted. While clarifying earlier, WhatsApp said that we cannot see your private messages or listen to your calls and neither can Facebook.
Thank you to everyone who’s reached out. We're still working to counter any confusion by communicating directly with @WhatsApp users. No one will have their account suspended or deleted on Feb 8 and we’ll be moving back our business plans until after May – https://t.co/H3DeSS0QfO
