Yes, there are consequences for not accepting the new WhatsApp terms and conditions soon.
If you haven’t noticed yet, WhatsApp will be coming with new terms and conditions soon. It puts users at a crossroads. Because a choice will have to be made. Say goodbye to WhatsApp, or accept the new policy and continue with the platform.
Deny whatsapp conditions
It is an issue, because you can refuse the new conditions. If your friends or family don’t go to another app, you’re the only one left. And that is also the monopoly of WhatsApp. Many users will shrug on those new terms. So you are more or less obliged to go along with the new WhatsApp conditions if you want to keep in touch with friends and family.
In the coming period, WhatsApp will inform its users about the new conditions. The conditions will take effect on May 15. Now it has also become known what the consequences are if you do not accept the conditions. Initially, WhatsApp will send you reminders. If you still do not agree, you can still receive notifications and make telephone calls via the app. However, reading and responding will no longer be possible. That part of the app is then blocked.
Ultimately, WhatsApp takes even stricter measures. If you show inactivity on WhatsApp for 120 days, your data will be deleted. (via TechCrunch)
