WhatsApp to Limit User Access Who Won’t Accept Privacy Policy

WhatsApp will limit user accounts if they won’t agree to it’s new privacy policy from May 15.

Memo assessed by Tech Crunch claims that the restricted users will not be able to read and send messages, although they will be able to receive notifications and calls for “a short time.” But if after 150 days they still do not take action, the company will delete their accounts.

WhatsApp announced this policy back in January and intended to implement it by February 15, but the received backlash from users resulted in a pushback, which they’ve now confirmed as May 15th. The extension, according to them, will enable users to review changes at their pace.

If you do not want to accept these WhatsApp changes, you can always move to another private messaging app which doesn’t have such rigid rules or questionable privacy policy. Even now, users can export their WahtsApp chats, but we are not sure if this will work once the deadline passes.
