The wind of the ball is always close for WhatsApp.
Facebook's messaging service on Friday announced a further postponement of strict enforcement of new privacy rules, accused by critics of expanding data collection from its two billion users.
A new regulation that has scared millions of users away for several months.
WhatsApp said on its site on Friday that it would not directly cut off access to users refusing the new terms but would continue to send them reminders.
Disagree, less features
According to the platform, the new rules change the way advertisers using WhatsApp to communicate with their customers can share data with Facebook.
But for its critics, such a change opens the door to wider data sharing with Facebook.
"No one will see their accounts deleted or lose the ability to use WhatsApp on May 15 due to this update," assured the platform on Friday. But users will receive "persistent" reminders about the new policy and risk losing some functionality over time if they do not agree to the new terms.
