WhatsApp goes into persuasion: “Please accept these updates to continue using WhatsApp”

Published

on

WhatsApp users confirmed that they started receiving a pop-up notification immediately after launching the app, reminding them to accept the new terms of service by May 15th.

A pop-up message repeats information about the new terms and privacy policy of WhatsApp. Part of the message reads, “Please accept these updates to continue using WhatsApp.” In addition, the team clarified what will happen to those who do not accept the new terms.

WhatsApp will not delete your account. However, you won’t have full WhatsApp functionality until you accept the new terms. For a short time, you will be able to receive calls and notifications, but will not be able to receive and send messages from the application.

Private messages will always be encrypted, so WhatsApp cannot read or listen to them. In the coming weeks, we will display a banner on WhatsApp with information in a more user-friendly format. We’ve also added additional information to try and resolve the issues we’re hearing about. Eventually, we will start reminding users to accept these policies in order to continue using WhatsApp.

If users do not respond to such persuasion, their accounts will be deleted. According to official company policy, accounts are “typically deleted after 120 days of inactivity.”

Initially, the new rules were supposed to come into force on February 8, but after a sharp churn of users and negative reactions, the deadline for adopting the new rules was postponed until May 15.

WhatsApp users will be banned from taking screenshots of files

WhatsApp developers are working on a new feature that will prevent users from taking screenshots and capturing video from the screen when opening files for a one-time view. The innovation has already been implemented in the beta version of the messenger for Android.

WhatsApp users will be banned from taking screenshots of files for one-time viewing

So, in the future mobile version of WhatsApp, users will be notified before sending a file with a single view that the recipient will be able to open the photo or video only once and will not be able to resend it to anyone, save it, copy it or take a screenshot. There are no such notifications or warnings in the current version of WhatsApp. True, at the same time, nothing prevents the recipient from recording a video or photographing content on another smartphone.

Recall that recently the release of a full-fledged WhatsApp client for desktop PCs and laptops running Windows took place.

Naturally, this does not mean at all that all these models will immediately stop receiving software updates – fresh firmware for them will continue to be released for a long time, as beta versions are transferred to the release (final) status. However, we can already say that these models will not receive anything fresher than MIUI 13 (MIUI 14 will not be released until November).

Xiaomi also announced the recruitment of participants in the Android 13 beta testing group for the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition gaming smartphone – the test will be launched before the end of this month.
