According to a FAQ on its website, users who do not accept the new policy have until May 15 to do so or risk losing full access to the application’s functionality.
Such users will not be able to read or send messages from the app, the company said, but the will be able to receive calls and notifications, however, this will only be possible for a “short time”.
However, in a chat with TechCrunch, the company informed that the “short time” will span a few weeks as policy related to inactive users will apply after May 15.
Users also stand the risk of being deleted from the app as WhatsApp’s policy for inactive users states that accounts are “generally deleted after 120 days of inactivity.”
