WhatsApp warns users about disconnection

WhatsApp messenger has begun to notify of new terms of use and privacy policy, according to the portal Gizchina.com.

May 15 will be a deadline when WhatsApp users will have to accept the new rules of the service or refuse it. As that date approaches, developers are devising new ways to convince people to consent.

According to Gizchina, pop-up notifications began to appear in the WhatsApp application – immediately after its launch. They talk about new terms of use and privacy policy, and an offer to “agree to updates to continue using WhatsApp”.

In addition, the message warns users that their account will not be deleted, but they will not have access to the full functionality of WhatsApp until they accept the terms. “For a short time you will be able to receive calls and notifications, but you will not be able to read and send messages,” reads the text of the notifications.
