WhatsApp goes on May 15 to accept the privacy policy

WhatsApp recently announced that it will implement a new privacy policy to clarify that the company will collect and use data when a user sends messages. Of course we should also mention the changes, or the effects that the sharing of data with Facebook, which the company is preparing, will have.

Millions of users reacted to the changes, and many resorted to alternative applications such as Telegram or Signal.

Now, as it turns out, WhatsApp has decided to cancel the May 15 deadline for the release of the controversial privacy policy.

According to a tweet from the Press Trust of India, WhatsApp canceled the May 15 deadline for accepting the new privacy policy. The publication also states that no account will be deleted if the new terms are not accepted by users, which is a complete reversal of the company's attitude.

In a statement, WhatsApp stated:

"While the majority of users who have received the new terms of service have accepted them, we estimate that some people have not had the opportunity to do so yet. No account will be deleted on May 15 due to this update and no one will lose WhatsApp functionality. We will be sending reminders to people in the coming weeks. "

At the first announcement, users had to accept the new privacy policy that paved the way for deeper integration of the service with Facebook before February 8th. According to the statement at the time, those who did not accept the new policy would be barred from using the messaging service.

Then the deadline changed for May 15th after the public reaction and now it seems that the deadline has been completely abolished.
