You will soon be blocked from messaging on WhatsApp unless you accept change, app confirms

WhatsApp users face being blocked from sending messages via the popular chat app unless they agree to new terms with the Facebook-owned service now revealing exactly what will happen to all accounts from May It's been a rollercoaster ride for fans of WhatsApp with the chat app abandoning a controversial change in January and pushing things back until May. Now we know exactly what will happen in the coming months and it's bad news if you don't agree to the firm's new terms. WhatsApp users who refuse to tap the "agree" button could soon find themselves blocked from the popular chat app with no access to sending messages to mates. That's the latest news from the Facebook-owned firm who has just announced its future plans and a big update to its terms and conditions. In a blog post, WhatsApp said: “WhatsApp will not delete your account. However, you won’t have full functionality of WhatsApp until you accept. For a short time, you’ll be able to receive calls and notifications, but won’t be able to read or send messages from the app.” So what exactly is changing and should you be worried? When WhatsApp first announced its updated terms many were concerned that it would mean more data being shared with Facebook. Luckily, that's not the case with WhatsApp keen to stress this upcoming change does not enable Facebook to access any more data from your personal chats. In fact, it will only impact conversations with a business account – like a customer care line for an online brand, for example. Even then, the data that can be accessed between these optional interactions with business accounts will not apply in the UK or mainland Europe, thanks to EU rules. So you shouldn't have any concerns moving forward. Payouts explained To help fans feel more confident with the changes, WhatsApp said in its latest blog post: “As a reminder, we're building new ways to chat or shop with a business on WhatsApp that are entirely optional. Personal messages will always be end-to-end encrypted, so WhatsApp can't read or listen to them. In the coming weeks, we'll display a banner in WhatsApp providing more information that people can read at their own pace. We've also included more information to try and address concerns we're hearing. Eventually, we'll start reminding people to review and accept these updates to keep using WhatsApp,” the blog post explains." For now, nothing will change, but as we approach May 15 and you get a message on your phone asking you to agree to new WhatsApp terms it appears you'll have to say yes or forget sending any more messages.
