Despite all the reactions and the loss of a large number of users, WhatsApp will continue to force users to accept their new terms even if they feel their privacy has been compromised.
The company released a new announcement informing its users that WhatsApp will switch off Users Messages those who did not receive the updated terms before May 15 will not be able to receive or send messages.
Not only that, this user account listed as “inactive” and any inactive accounts can be deleted after 120 days. the company said in a message on the latest blog.
For now, calls and notifications will continue for a short time. But TechCrunch says it will likely only last “a few weeks”.
The company already shares some information with Facebook, including users’ IP addresses and purchases made through the platform. However, this is not the case in Europe and the United Kingdom, which have different data protection laws.
This helpout WhatsApp to suspend the launch of the new policy until May. They made it clear that the update considered to allow users to interact with the company rather than affect face-to-face conversations.
The company will remind users to review and receive updates to keep using the messaging platform.
