The message that WhatsApp is sending to the whole world so that we accept its conditions


In case you've been to Mars in recent months, WhatsApp reminds you: either you accept their new privacy policies before May 15, or you will no longer have access to the messaging platform.

For weeks, months even, we have been circling the new terms and conditions of use of WhatsApp, draconian policies that have caused a massive exodus towards Telegram and other options, and that first made the leaders of the Facebook messaging service back down for now complete a getaway to ahead that will undoubtedly harm thousands of users.

And it is that yes friends, WhatsApp already has a new update, all users must accept If we want to continue using your platform, some new terms of use that were to be published in January but that have received a moratorium until May 15, day in which If you do not accept them, you will see how the WhatsApp service is blocked on your devices.

WhatsApp will not delete your account. However, you will not have all the functionalities of WhatsApp until you accept. […] For a period of time, you will be able to receive calls and notifications, but you will not be able to read or send messages from the app.

In that same message on his blog, WhatsApp also rushed to expand the detail to justify the new terms, notifying that they are working on new ways to chat with companies or buy directly from WhatsApp, which will be optional even accepting the conditions of use.

They also confirmed that messages will remain end-to-end encrypted, something that they now presume but that took longer than it should have arrived, and they warn that a banner with all the information so that we can review the terms as calmly as we need before accepting them definitively.

The thing is, as the situation is right now, There is only one option to continue on WhatsApp, which is to accept their new privacy policies and updated terms of use.
