Will you be affected or will you continue to use the app? Despite its announced change last January to its privacy policies and after having retracted several times, WhatsApp continues to be the leader in the category of fast messaging applications. Through the app you can send videos, photos, GIFs, stickers and even make calls and video calls from anywhere in the world. It is a very useful tool on our cell phones.

Currently, WhatsApp is bringing a series of new features such as the launch of messages that self-destruct in 7 days if they are not read; however, these will not be able to be tested by some users as of May 15 due to a reason. Here we tell you more about it.
LOOK: WhatsApp and the trick to know who is “online” without opening the app
The app has sent all its users a message explaining its new 2021 policies that will come into effect in the fortnight of this month. In this it is reported that the company does not have access to your personal information, to your conversations or everything you send or write.
However, the controversial point is that WhatsApp will share your number with Facebook to improve its advertising system related to the chats you have with certain companies.
WHAT CELL PHONES WILL RUN OUT OF WHATSAPP ON MAY 15
While WhatsApp is no longer supported on some mobile devices, it will now no longer be supported on certain devices that have not accepted the new 2021 policies before May 15.
If the message appeared and you did not click “Accept”, then it is possible that you can no longer send messages or answer calls, causing you to not use WhatsApp normally. In the same way, you will not be able to see photos and videos either.
The only way to use WhatsApp normally again is by accepting the new 2021 policy, and for this you simply have to go to the app settings from your iPhone or Android. Display the message again and accept.
Remember that, if you don’t want to, the company will ask you to uninstall the app from your mobile terminal. Therefore, you must yes or yes approve the conditions of use.
It should be noted that WhatsApp has reported that, for the moment, mobile devices that do not accept the new regulations will not be affected, although until what day is unknown. So you can send messages normally, even make calls and video calls.
Do you have any problem? Do you need to report it? If you have any kind of problem, then you should write to their contact email: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also make the same request from your iPhone.
