WhatsApp not accessing personal messages
The updated policy will come into effect from May 15
The updated policy of WhatsApp was to be implemented from 8 February but due to privacy concerns, it started to protest. Many users started shifting to other social messaging apps like Telegram and Signal. In such a situation, WhatsApp extended the deadline of 8 February to 15 May.
The deadline means that you have to accept the updated policy of WhatsApp by May 15, otherwise you will not be able to use it. However, through blogpost, WhatsApp has made it clear that it will inform the users about its updated policy.
In the next few weeks, users will be given information about the new policy through a banner on the chat window, how it will change and how it will collect information from users.
