PTA Whatsapp

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) on Wednesday issued a statement regarding WhatsApp’s new terms of service following growing concern regarding the messaging service.

In a series of Tweets, the telecom regulator shared a clarification by Facebook and WhatsApp in view of the “concerns by general public”.

The PTA stated that WhatsApp has announced that the privacy policy will come into effect on February 8, of this year.

“The rationale for the changes in the WhatsApp privacy policy is to make it easier for people to both make a purchase and get help from a business directly on WhatsApp,” explained the PTA citing the messaging service.
