WhatsApp Updates I Terms and Privacy Policy
面对多方强烈反弹,WhatsApp宣布把新政策实行的限期推迟至5月15日,让用户有足够时间阅读和理解条款

(德国之声中文网)这几天,不少香港人的手机上新增了两个应用程式——Signal和MeWe——来替代使用多年的WhatsApp和Facebook。社交分享平台上涌现一个个帖文和QR Code,人们把自己的新帐号奔走相告,呼吁彼此在「彼方」再会。

引爆这波移民潮的是WhatsApp的新私隐政策。它在1月4日公布,将会把用户资料与母公司Facebook及Instagram、Messenger等集团旗下软件分享,要求用户在2月8日前同意新条款,否则便无法继续使用服务。WhatsApp是目前最受欢迎的即时通讯软件,在全球拥有超过20亿用户,是欧美、印度、香港等多地最常用的通讯工具之一。

WhatsApp的新私隐政策一石激起千重浪,用户逃亡潮在多国上演。1月14日,WhatsApp在它最大的市场印度迎来首宗诉讼,入禀状指控新条款近乎等同监控用户,违反印度宪法保障的基本权利,而用户资料於外国传送和储存则危害国家安全。WhatsApp在印度超过10份报章卖头版登广告,强调会尊重私隐及保密对话内容,力图保住当地4亿用户。
