What happens if you don’t consent: WhatsApp won’t allow users to READ or SEND messages if they reject new privacy rules

WhatsApp has confirmed that users won’t be able to read or send messages unless they agree to its rules on sharing personal data with Facebook. The new T&Cs have sparked backlash and led to a surge in popularity of rival apps.

On Sunday, the company shared the details of how the new terms of service will affect its users with the tech news website TechCrunch. The comment came after the outlet cited an email sent by WhatsApp to one of its merchant partners.

Last month, WhatsApp asked users to agree to an update that will allow the messenger to share personal data, like phone numbers and locations, with Facebook, which owns the app.
