WhatsApp With Privacy?
Now the company is backtracking but the alternative is barely better. Facebook won’t delete your account but will limit the functionality of those that don’t accept the new policy. Per the FAQ:
- You won’t be able to access your chat list, but you can still answer incoming phone and video calls. If you have notifications enabled, you can tap on them to read or respond to a message or call back a missed phone or video call.
- After a few weeks of limited functionality, you won’t be able to receive incoming calls or notifications, and WhatsApp will stop sending messages and calls to your phone.
