WhatsApp Will Not Limit Your Account
As the misunderstandings grew, WhatsApp has postponed the execution of its new terms to May and took time to make users learn why the new terms aren’t so concerning. But, users are still reluctant to new changes and hesitating to accept them. This led WhatsApp to warn users about the limited functionality of the app’s features and making it unusable over time.
This scared users, with some advocating against it and most shifting to alternatives like Telegram and Signal. As this is eventually leading to the downfall of WhatsApp, the company has now made a decision that entices the users. This is to indefinitely pause the practice of limiting functionality upon non-acceptance of terms.
As revealed by a WhatsApp spokesperson to The Verge, “Given recent discussions with various authorities and privacy experts, we want to make clear that we will not limit the functionality of how WhatsApp works for those who have not yet accepted the update.”
Further, they said to continue reminding users about the changes from time to time until they accept them. This is in the hope that the “approach reinforces the choice that all users have whether or not they want to interact with a business.”
