If you don’t accept the new privacy policies after May 15, you will lose some key functionality. WhatsApp has created a new FAQ page titled What happens on the effective date according to which, “For a short time, you’ll be able to receive calls and notifications, but won’t be able to read or send messages from the app.”
So, you’re now basically left with two options:
- Give in and accept the new privacy policies.
- Download your chat history and move to another messaging app.
However, once the deadline is over and if you have not Accepted then your account will be inactive and inactive accounts are automatically deleted after 120 days.
