EU Judicial Commissioner Didier Renders has announced a one-month budget to provide “solid liability” to the union’s concerns that users will not have “all the clear information they need” about providing their information to third parties under the new rules. The application was announced in January 2021.
“WhatsApp users need to make sure they understand what they agree to and how their personal information is used,” Renders said. “I expect WhatsApp to fully comply with EU rules, which protect consumers and their privacy.”
Following this final warning, the European Consumer Association (BEUC) filed a complaint alleging that “WhatsApp has been plaguing users with stubborn pop-up messages for months. This problem was first deliberately disabled by WhatsApp, which laid the groundwork for telecommuting information without proper user permission.”
In response to Bloomberg, WhatsApp said it expects to “explain” to the Commission how “we protect the privacy of our users when complying with our obligations under European law.”
