WhatsApp’s new privacy policy, which includes new clauses assuring that the service will share data with Facebook, has been highly criticized. The firm appears to have changed its decision after stating that customers who do not accept the new policy may lose app functionality.

Following negotiations with authorities and privacy experts, a WhatsApp spokesman told The Verge that the business opted not to limit the app’s functioning for those who do not accept the new privacy policy. WhatsApp states that “this is the plan going forward indefinitely,” but does not specify whether users would be forced to approve the upgrade again.

“In light of recent talks with different agencies and privacy experts, we want to be clear that we will not limit the functionality of how WhatsApp operates for individuals who have not yet accepted the update,” a WhatsApp spokeswoman told The Verge in a statement. According to WhatsApp, this is the plan going forward indefinitely. On May 15, WhatsApp’s updated privacy rules went into effect.

Previously, the firm stated that anyone who did not agree to the revised rules would lose access to various WhatsApp functions, such as the chat list and audio and video calls. This not only irritated some users but also sparked anxiety among governments throughout the world. WhatsApp’s help page for the privacy changes has been amended to guarantee that “no one’s accounts will be erased or lost functionality.” According to the firm, “the majority of users who have viewed the update have accepted.”
