The Facebook owned messaging platform hasn’t clarified if it will allow these users to make calls to send messages via the app post after May 15.

Eventually, few weeks after May 15, these users will stop receiving all calls and messages. This means, anyone who doesn’t accept the new WhatsApp Privacy Policy will eventually lose access most of the key functionalities. In other words, eventually, each and every WhatsApp user in India will need to accept the new privacy policy to be able to use all functionalities of the app and enjoy the newly released features.

WhatsApp users who still haven’t accepted the terms will get the policy pop-up on the app home screen.

To accept the new privacy policy, users will just need to tap on ‘Agree’ option that appears on the screen when they log into the app. “By tapping AGREE, you accept the new terms and privacy policy,” WhatsApp shows this banner on the screen. If you do not see the pop-up on the app, chances are you have already accepted the newly updated WhatsApp privacy policy.
