On Thursday, WhatsApp sent ultimatum-like pop-up messages to users in some regions, including India, asking them to accept the new privacy regulations or they will risk losing their accounts. The change of policy happened overnight and users couldn’t check their WhatsApp chats without agreeing with the updated policy terms.
If sources are to be believed, Mark Zukerberg has remotely clicked on agree button of various users who tried to read the policy terms, which agrees to give users’ private data to Mark Zukerberg.
One of the users told The Fauxy, “I woke up to this notification and wanted to check if my crush has replied to my good night message but I couldn’t until I click on agree button. I though I should read the policy terms but in just three seconds the agree button clicked somehow. I felt like I got used, but then I reminded myself it’s okay to be used because I am the product.”
Reportedly, the policy terms were updated as Mark Zukerberg drank a lot last night after seeing Elon Musk topping the world’s richest people list. WA payment has also been launched for the same reason.
