The new privacy policy of the instant messaging app WhatsApp has come into effect from May 15. For those who have accepted this policy of WhatsApp, there is no problem. But those who have not done so will continue to get notifications for a few days. However, they will be able to use the limited features of WhatsApp.

WhatsApp is a popular instant messaging app not only in India but worldwide. If you have not accepted the new privacy policy of WhatsApp, do not worry. The company will send you notifications right now. If you do not accept the WhatsApp policy, then the company will not delete your account. Yes, you will be able to use its limited features. In this regard, WhatsApp has clarified that the accounts of users who do not accept the privacy policy will not be closed, but notifications will send to the users. The company will send a reminder to the user continuously for a few weeks. 

No voice-video calls

For not accepting the policy, the company will put you in Limited Functionality Mode. After this, you will neither be able to access your chat list nor will you be able to make voice and video calls. Even you will not be able to answer the incoming voice-video call. You will be able to receive notifications for some time, but you will not be able to read the message nor to send the message to anyone. Gradually WhatsApp will stop sending messages and calls to your phone. If seen, WhatsApp will not close the account, but it will not be of any use to you. 

Options of WhatsApp

By the way, WhatsApp has said about the new privacy policy that it is only for business account. WhatsApp will read the chat of only business account and share with the parent company Facebook. The new policy has nothing to do with the private chat. If you do not want to accept the policy of WhatsApp, you can use an app like Telegram, Signal, Snapchat etc. Features like WhatsApp are also present in these. If you want to use Indian apps, then there are options related to this. You can use JioChat featuring text-based chatting, HD voice calling and video calling. You can also join the India Messenger app, developed under Local for Vocal. This app also gives you the facility of calling, story, chat request and global search.
