But the announcement also underscored a truth that many had been reluctant to acknowledge: if you’re a WhatsApp user, you’re a Facebook customer, and while the two services have historically been quite distinct, the process of integration only moves in one direction.
Now, a new message sent to users who have not yet accepted these changes announces that the time for acceptance of these conditions is delayed until May 15.
The message explains that until May 15, it will not yet be mandatory to have accepted the conditions: if you don’t accept them after that date you will not be able to send or receive messages; you will have a short period of time to download all your information stored there and continue receiving calls or notifications.
The grace period given to these users has not yet been specified, however, after that period the account will be deleted.
