WhatsApp banning under-16s in Europe

He's laughing at you

The rules are created to bolster existing data privacy rules and give individuals more say over how their personal information is used. "Our goal is simply to explain how we use and protect the limited information we have about you", it added. More importantly, it will ban the usage of children's online data or profiles for marketing or advertising purposes.

Twitter said it is expanding and revising the privacy policy content to make some legalistic or technical language as clear as possible. "It's optimised for both mobile and web", Kieran said.

The "Social Media Privacy and Consumer Rights Act" introduced by Republican Senator John Kennedy and Democrat Amy Klobuchar would require terms of service agreements to be in plain language, and enable users to see what information about them has already been collected and shared.

In a related development, Facebook's Instagram service has also launched a "data download" tool that provides a file containing the photos, comments, archived Stories, contacts and other personal data a user had posted to the service in the past.

On May 25, people who live in the European Union will see a prompt when they log into their Twitter account. You will also need to agree to the new terms of service and privacy policy.

Under the Request account info, you can then tap on a new Download report option. "You can leave them all as they are, modify each, and learn more about any of the individual settings before making a change - the choice is entirely in your hands", Kieran wrote. After four years of debate, the GDPR was finally approved by the EU Parliament on April 14, 2016. Organisations failing to comply with the new regulation may face hefty fines.

WhatsApp said it was not asking for any new rights to collect personal information as part of the new terms.

The soon-to-be-implemented EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will facilitate more control over how companies manage user information, which the user can now elect to erased.

The changes in privacy policies have come under serious consideration after the recent chaos of Facebook data breach and WhatsApp being the Facebook's entity, has to go through the brunt.
