The new policy will be asking users to either agree with WhatsApp to share its data with Facebook. Or close their accounts.
When this privacy rolled out; we saw many WhatsApp users migrating to other secure private messaging apps such as Signal and Telegram.
Although WhatsApp has extended the deadline for its users to accept this new policy, users can’t use their WhatsApp accounts again when the given deadline is over.
However, users can open the messaging app, see messages and receive calls but can’t pick these calls or reply to these messages.
And when you try to do it, WhatsApp will ask you to agree to the terms before you can reply or receive calls.
When this happens to your account, WhatsApp will add your WhatsApp account to the inactive WhatsApp accounts, and inactive WhatsApp accounts also have 120 days to make changes, or else WhatsApp will delete their accounts.
Now is the time to know what to do next or migrate from the app to Signal or Telegram.
If you plan on staying on WhatsApp, then the messaging app has introduced a new feature you will love.
This new feature allows you to set a wallpaper for specific contact or all contacts.
With this new feature, you can set a wallpaper for each individual you chat with, and you can set a wallpaper of your mom on a chat between your mom and you.
