WhatsApp has moved from persuasion to real restrictions: dissenters begin to limit the functionality of the service

May 15 has arrived, which means that WhatsApp is moving from a policy of persuasion to real restrictions that will affect those who have not adopted the new rules for using the service.

Starting today, these users will begin to receive a notification that can no longer be dismissed. When you receive this notification, the functionality of WhatsApp will be limited until you accept the new rules. These will not happen for all users at the same time.

Immediately after receiving such a notification, you will not have access to the chat list, but you will be able to answer incoming audio and video calls. If you have notifications turned on, you can tap them to read or reply to messages, and to call back if you missed an audio or video call. After a few weeks, you will no longer be able to receive incoming calls and notifications, and WhatsApp will stop sending messages and calls to your phone.

WhatsApp clarifies that the company will not delete your account if you do not accept the update, however, if you wish, you can do it yourself, losing your backups and the entire history of your messages.
