In the new privacy conditions, WhatsApp asked its users to allow more information about their messages to be shared with its parent company, Facebook, although with nuances. This caused a rout of users to other platforms, to the point that WhatsApp itself had to go out to try to stop the flight. Now, WhatsApp has confirmed what will happen if the conditions of May 15 are not accepted: the app cannot be used.
First, goodbye to the messages; later, goodbye to WhatsApp
In addition to this, it turns out that these data exchanges between WhatsApp and Facebook are prohibited in the European Union, so it would not affect users residing in the Old Continent. Be that as it may, the displacement of users occurred and now WhatsApp has anticipated that possibly not a few users of its platform will end up being expelled from it.
WhatsApp has confirmed what will happen if we do not accept the new privacy conditions that will take effect from May 15. Simply, the application will gradually stop working. Initially, the ability to exchange text messages and files with other users will be lost. If we do not accept the new conditions, WhatsApp will not allow us to send or receive messages, whatever their content.
For a time, WhatsApp will allow us to continue making and receiving voice calls and also video calls, but this will also end up disappearing. As WhatsApp has confirmed to Verge, these voice calls and video calls will be allowed « a few weeks ». After this period, WhatsApp will cease to be operational for these users. In short, they will not be able to use WhatsApp again unless they accept the new conditions.
