After the turmoil, concerns and doubts, the new deadline for approving WhatsApp terms comes: The deadline for WhatsApp's new terms of use comes on May 15, and now the giant platform explains what will happen to those who do not approve the new terms of use.

"No account will be deleted or lost from its functionality following the May 15 update," WhatsApp clarified.

The new information is different from what was published by WhatsApp in February, so they warned that not accepting the new terms until the deadline would mean that users would lose access to the account.

"If you do not agree to the terms by then, WhatsApp will not research the account, but you will lose full access to the platform, and you will not be able to send messages from the app."

So what happens to those who do not approve the new terms? Users who have not yet approved the terms will "earn" a reminder on the platform. After a few weeks the reminder will become a "continuous reminder", and at this point the functionality of the app will be limited. In this way, it will be possible to answer incoming calls and respond to messages by clicking on the call in the notifications, but it will not be possible to reach the regular chat list from within the app. After a few more weeks, users will also lose this access, and in fact will not be able to use the platform. According to WhatsApp rules, the company deletes accounts after 120 days of inactivity.



"In recent months we have invested a lot to provide information on the new update," a WhatsApp spokesman said in a statement. "By that time, most people had already approved the new policy, WhatsApp continues to grow. However, whoever has not yet approved the new policy, his account will not be deleted and he will not lose functionality on May 15th.We will continue to provide a reminder to these users. "

The update to the policy that smuggled users from the platform

The new WhatsApp update addressed the changes when messaging users with businesses.

For example, if you browsed a business user's catalog, WhatsApp intended to save the information and "bounce" it on Facebook as well.

In January WhatsApp announced that it would postpone the final date for approving the terms of use to May 15th.

So she said: "Much more will be done to find out the misinformation surrounding the behavior of privacy and security in WhatsApp. After that, people can check the policy at their own pace, before new business options become available on May 15."
