According to available data, from May 15, outgoing calls and messages from users who have not confirmed their agreement with the new policy will be blocked. However, they will still be able to answer messages and receive calls. Later, the service will completely block the ability to send and receive messages and make calls, and also disable notifications. The developers note that the restrictions will take place gradually over several weeks.
WhatsApp will block calls and messages from users who disagree with the new policy
“For the last several weeks we’ve displayed a notification in WhatsApp providing more information about the update,” the company said in a statement. “After giving everyone time to review, we’re continuing to remind those who haven’t had the chance to do so to review and accept. After a period of several weeks, the reminder people receive will eventually become persistent.”
