Facebook’s instant messaging app, WhatsApp, is preparing new restrictions — linked to communication with some business accounts — for users who do not accept its terms of privacy.
In these cases, before starting the communication, the Facebook messaging network will send a message to the user reminding that WhatsApp has updated its terms and privacy policies. However, in order for the communications to continue, that user will have to accept the new terms.
According to the WaBetaInfo portal, this new function will take effect soon, with a new update for iOS and Android operating systems.
The decision to place new restrictions would have come after many WhatsApp users started opting for other communication apps.
