What will happen to your WhatsApp account if you don’t agree to the new privacy changes

WhatsApp Privacy PolicyFacebook explained what will happen to WhatsApp users who do not agree to the new privacy policy changes to allow WhatsApp to share more data with Facebook. If a person does not accept the new terms by May 15th, WhatsApp functionality will be significantly reduced. Calls and notifications will work for a short time, but the core instant messaging features will be blocked.

Facebook is going forward with its controversial WhatsApp privacy policy change despite the backlash. Facebook continues to explain the changes, insisting that WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption that protects calls and chats isn’t going away. But Facebook doesn’t provide clarity on what sort of personal data WhatsApp will share with Facebook, nor does it explain why the privacy changes are mandatory for users. The new terms are meant to govern optional commerce features that not all WhatsApp users will necessarily take advantage of. Facebook’s privacy policy warnings from early January only gave users the option of agreeing to the changes. There was no opt-out option in it. That’s not going to change going forward. WhatsApp explained exactly what will happen to your account should you not want to agree to the new policy.
