This lead to severe outrage across the globe and many of WhatsApp's users began migrating to other messaging apps like Telegram, Signal and others. The calls for WhatsApp to not bring in those propposed updates had been growing with each passing day and people had also begun to boycott the app. However, recently WhatsApp had posted a blog update, clarifying that not all user data would be shared and that one-on-one chats would continue to remain encrypted and no third party, not even WhatsApp nor its servers would be able to listen in on those conversations or read those messages. WhatsApp had reiterated that the proposed changes would only apply for any conversations happening on business accounts, to enable related advertisements to be displayed on Facebook and Instagram.
