WhatsApp Won’t Stop Users From Sending Messages Even If They Don’t Accept New Privacy Policy 

WhatsApp said that it will not prevent its users from sending messages who have not accepted the new privacy policy. Earlier this month, the social media company announced that it would not remove the users’ accounts who have not accepted the new privacy policy but will restrict them from some basic features.

As per the TNW report, WhatsApp has given up on the idea of punishing users for not accepting the new privacy policy. WhatsApp told the TNW that “Given recent discussions with various authorities and privacy experts, we want to make clear that we currently have no plans to limit the functionality of how WhatsApp works for those who have not yet accepted the update. Instead, we will continue to remind users from time to time about the update as well as when people choose to use relevant optional features, like communicating with a business that is receiving support from Facebook.”

Additionally, WhatsApp has updated its FAQ page. It states that no one will lose the functionality of WhatsApp or have their accounts deleted. The messaging company also informed that several users have accepted the new privacy policy, but some have not. Users who have not accepted the new policy yet will receive a notification providing more information about the update. 

WhatsApp said in its statement that “We will continue to remind users from time to time and let them accept the update, including when they choose to use relevant optional features like communicating with a business that is receiving support from Facebook. We hope this approach reinforces the choice that all users have whether or not they want to interact with a business.”
