WhatsApp may restrict functionality if you do not agree to the new privacy policy

The update of the privacy policy by WhatsApp, a Facebook-affiliated messaging application, is raising questions, but if you do not agree to this new privacy policy, you will not be able to access some important features.

WhatsApp added a new condition to its privacy policy in January 2021 due to the increase in business transactions. Due to these changes, WhatsApp and its parent company Facebook could collect user data such as phone numbers and location information. Facebook user data sharing was initially scheduled to become a mandatory option after February 8, 2021.

Updates to the privacy policy by WhatsApp may be a cause of large-scale user churn due to consideration or concern to users in terms of personal information protection.

With a growing number of criticisms about WhatsApp’s new privacy policy, the company announced that it would postpone the implementation of the new privacy policy from February 8, 2021 to May 15. It turns out that if you don’t agree to this new privacy policy, you won’t be able to access many important WhatsApp features.

According to WhatsApp emails to partners, if you do not agree to the new privacy policy, the application will not be able to read and send messages. It allows you to be notified when you receive a call or message temporarily, but expects to lose this functionality eventually.

WhatsApp also said about updates to the privacy policy, saying that changes to the terms and conditions and privacy policy do not affect personal messages. The changes are related to the business functions provided by WhatsApp as an option, providing more transparency about how data is collected. It is explained that it is for. The email also includes a link to the FAQ page, which also includes options for those who do not want to agree to the privacy policy. The FAQ states that those who do not want to agree to the new privacy policy are advised to download an account report in chat history before May 15, 2021 and delete the account.
