SIC Notes |  WhatsApp is backing away from restricting access to those who reject the privacy policy

SIC Notes | WhatsApp is backing away from restricting access to those who reject the privacy policy

The social network WhatsApp has changed its stance and now says that no user will be able to use their account as of May 15th if they reject the privacy policy.

“No account will be deleted or WhatsApp jobs lost on May 15 due to this update,” the Facebook-owned company said in a statement released on Friday.

This position differs from the one that WhatsApp has assumed in recent weeks, which stated that users who refused to accept the new privacy policy for the smartphone instant messaging app would not be able to access the “full features” as of May 15.

Among the features, reading or sending messages can be limited.

Facebook and WhatsApp, the most used messaging app worldwide, have repeatedly rejected information that this update will allow access to messages and geolocation of users and groups.

This update in privacy policies has raised suspicion and misinformation about Facebook’s use of information such as contacts and conversation history.

Due to these disputes and ambiguities, WhatsApp extended the deadline for accepting privacy policies from February to May.
