Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has defended WhatsApp’s much-bashed privacy policy update, justifying that it is aimed at easing “optional experiences for businesses in the app”.

Zuckerberg said in a statement on January 28, “We are building new features to make it even easier to transact with businesses in the app. We're building tools to let businesses store and manage their WhatsApp chats using our secure hosting infrastructure, if they would like.”

According to him, WhatsApp is “in the process” of updating its privacy policy in terms of service to reflect these optional experiences.

Zuckerberg also clarified that the update does not change the privacy of anyone’s messages with friends and family.
