WhatsApp Users have to Accept New Privacy Policy or else you will lose access to these functions

WhatsApp had clarified that users will not lose their accounts even if they don’t accept the policy.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp‘s had said users not accepting its privacy policy update by its May 15 deadline will not face deletion or lose functionality of their accounts.

The update brings lot of buzz and forced many users to switch to other alternate messaging apps such as Signal and Telegram.

WhatsApp had clarified that users will not lose their accounts even if they don’t accept the policy but now reports have stated that the users will lose access to some important features if they don’t accept the policy.

“For the last several weeks we’ve displayed a notification in WhatsApp providing more information about the update. After giving everyone time to review, we’re continuing to remind those who haven’t had the chance to do so to review and accept. After a period of several weeks, the reminder people receive will eventually become persistent”, the company has updated in its FAQ page.

Users will lose these functions:-

The Company will stop you from accessing your chat list. However, it would let you answer incoming calls or video calls if you have notifications enabled.

You can tap on them to read or respond to a message or call back a missed phone or video call. Things would change after a few weeks if you still don’t accept the new policies.

As said before by the company, the WhatsApp account that do not accept the privacy policy will not be deleted anymore.

WhatsApp account is absolutely useless if you cannot call or send messages to your contact list.

So each and every WhatsApp user will need to accept the new privacy policy to be able to use all functionalities of the app.

How to accept WhatsApp privacy policy?

To accept the new privacy policy, users will just need to tap on ‘Agree’ option that appears on the screen when they log into the app.
