WhatsApp recently revealed that those who do not agree to the new terms will not lose their account after May 15. “We will continue to make consumers aware of the need to accept the new terms in the coming weeks,” WhatsApp said.
More information is available on WhatsApp’s FAQ page. This morning, after May 15, you will occasionally see a notification asking you to accept the terms and conditions when you first open WhatsApp. After a few weeks the rate at which this notification is displayed will increase again (short that is almost disgusting).
WhatsApp hopes that by this time almost all users will have accepted the new terms. If not, WhatsApp call and notification services will be limited in a few days. In short what WhatsApp is used for, that usage will not happen
As mentioned earlier, if you do not agree to the terms after May 15, your account will not be deleted. But when it becomes obsolete, consumers will either be forced to accept the new terms. Otherwise you will have to switch to other instant messaging apps like Signal and Telegram.
