- Minister Ard van der Steur (Security and Justice) is concerned about the changes to the privacy terms of WhatsApp. The message service is information users share with Facebook, owner of WhatsApp.

Van der Steur responded Tuesday on critical questions of VVD parliamentarian Jeroen van Wijngaarden, who advocates for clear terms of use. The fear is that many users will blindly agree to the exchange of data.

Van der Steur does indicate that people have a responsibility to read the terms. He believes that users should be well informed and always be able to return to their choice.

The Dutch Authority for Personal Data as yet no action. UK privacy regulator will monitor the developments.

The announcement that WhatsApp will share data with Facebook has caused quite a stir. Upon the acquisition of WhatsApp by Facebook two years ago, both companies still swore that this would not happen.

WhatsApp presents the change of course an advantage. By connecting phone to Facebook, the company says, for example more appropriate ads on Facebook to post,, and to make better suggestions for friendships. '
