Facebook-owned messaging colossus WhatsApp Friday retreated again from its plan to force users to accept new terms which critics said could expand data collection from its 2bn users around the world. WhatsApp, which was set to enforce its new data-sharing policy on May 15 - following a delay in response to a user outcry - revealed on its website that it would not immediately cut off users who don't accept the new terms, although it would send reminders to those who don't opt in. The update will allow additional sharing of information from WhatsApp with Facebook and its other applications such as Instagram and Messenger, such as contacts and profile data, but not the content of messages which remain encrypted.
