What happens if users won’t accept WhatsApp Privacy Policy

WhatsApp has said that no one will have their accounts deleted or lose the functionality of WhatsApp on May 15th because of this update. WhatsApp updated its FAQ page and said that we’ve displayed a notification in WhatsApp providing more information about the privacy policy.

We’re continuing to remind those who haven’t had the chance to do so to review and accept, after giving everyone time to review.  It also said that after several weeks, the reminders people receive will eventually become persistent.

What will happen after you receive a persistent reminder on your WhatsApp?

When you receive the persistent reminder on your WhatsApp at that time, you’ll encounter limited functionality on WhatsApp until you accept the updates. One of the important things is that this will not happen to all users simultaneously.

You won’t be able to access your chat list, but you can still answer the incoming phone and 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.

After a few weeks of limited functionality, you won’t be able to receive incoming calls or notifications and WhatsApp will stop sending messages and calls to your phone, WhatsApp said. Your account will be useless, once limited functionality. You have only two options whether you can accept its privacy policy or shift to alternative apps. Signal and Telegram are some of the most popular alternative messaging apps of WhatsApp.
