After the messaging service WhatsApp announced that all users who did not want to agree to the new terms and conditions could no longer use the app, news appeared shortly before the deadline.
As of May 15, there will be no restrictions for all users who do not agree to WhatsApp’s new terms and conditions.
At the beginning of 2021, WhatsApp sent notifications to its users that new terms and conditions must be agreed by February 8th in order to continue using the Messenger app. It was mainly about WhatsApp and Facebook linking. This deadline was extended to May 15 after numerous protests on social media. Until then, the company wanted to better educate its users about the new regulation. This deadline has now been pushed back again.
There are no details from WhatsApp
How long this goodwill rule will apply remains unclear at this time. WhatsApp has not disclosed how long users who do not want approval can continue to use the app in total harm. WhatsApp still wants to implement the new terms and conditions.
The bottom line is WhatsApp remains completely usable by all users for now.
