WhatsApp has added a feature to the latest beta version of its messaging app that allows users to view and download the data collected about them. The company likely added the feature, to comply with upcoming privacy regulations in the European Union. From May 2018 there are new privacy regulations for companies who collect and store data about European citizens.
