Previously, we posted an article about WhatsApp’s new Terms of Services that said WhatsApp was going to limit the app functionality if the users do not accept the new Terms of Services. But now, users in India continue to use WhatsApp without any functionality limit, even if they haven’t accepted new Terms of Services, but until India’s Personal Data Protection, Bill comes into effect.
Five months ago, WhatsApp gets some questions from the Indian Government about user data being shared with Facebook. But WhatsApp declared that “We will not limit the functionality of how WhatsApp works in the coming weeks. Instead, we will continue to remind users about the update as well as when people choose to use relevant optional features, such as communicating with a business that is receiving support from Facebook… We hope this approach reinforces the choice that all users have whether or not they want to interact with a business. We will maintain this approach until at least the forthcoming PDP law comes into effect”.
Despite everything, WhatsApp still claimed that the Terms of Service do not change the way you chat with your friends and family, but they are needed to improve the communication with specific business accounts. But, we are still not sure what decision WhatsApp make in the future.
But the question still messing with peoples heads and in some countries such as Germany, Turkey, and Argentina about “If WhatsApp won’t limit the app functionalities when the user doesn’t accept the Terms of Service, why should users accept them?”
