After defining the privacy controversy “the result of disinformation”, WhatsApp has returned to address the issue of new policies, explaining what will happen to those who do not accept them.
In particular, according to what was reported by GSMArena and TechCrunch, the issue of the update on privacy, which was to be released on February 8, 2021 but following the online “debate” it was postponed to May 15, 2021, it had made many users “escape” also due to the fact that a “hard line” had emerged for those who did not accept the new policies.
In the last few hours, WhatsApp has revealed what will happen starting from 15 May 2021 to those who do not accept the news in terms of privacy. Put simply, those who reject the policies will be able to continue receiving calls and notifications for a few weeks, but will not be able to read or send messages through the application.
On the other hand, it is not clear what will happen following the “few weeks” following the rejection of the policies. In any case, it seems it seems that the inactivity time leading to the cancellation of an account is 120 days.
For the rest, WhatsApp has published a FAQ page relating to the policies and is working to inform users in other ways as well.
