New Delhi: Instant text messaging app WhatsApp has been facing criticism over its privacy policy since the beginning of this year. WhatsApp’s new policy was earlier scheduled to take effect in February, but will now take effect on May 15, 2021. The company had avoided a date to implement the new privacy policy after the dispute arose. The company is constantly sending notifications to the user about the new policy. However, if you do not accept this policy, let us know.

Account closed after 120 days

WhatsApp states that users cannot send or receive messages unless they agree to the terms. Those who do not accept the new terms will have their accounts deactivated and will be closed after 120 days. The company has the largest number of users in India. WhatsApp is accused of sharing more data with parent company Facebook under the new policy. WhatsApp, however, denied the allegations, saying the update was related to a business account.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp’s terms will not apply as there are already separate laws in Europe. WhatsApp shares a lot of information with Facebook, including the user’s IP address.
