Is WhatsApp stores messages?
No, says WhatsApp. According to the privacy policy, once a message is delivered, it is “deleted” from the servers. WhatsApp stores a message only when it “cannot be delivered immediately” — the message can then stay on its servers “for up to 30 days” in an encrypted form as WhatsApp continues to try to deliver it. If undelivered even after 30 days, the message is deleted.
Is it mandatory to accept the privacy policy?
Yes, this is standard practice for most software. If you don’t want to, you can delete your account and switch to another service.

A lot of people seem to be switching to Signal from WhatsApp.
Signal is another messaging app, free and end-to-end encrypted, and which has gained a popularity after new WhatsApp policy. WhatsApp uses Signal’s protocol for its encryption. But Signal is not owned by any corporation, and is run by a nonprofit.

Success! You're on the list.
