Earlier WhatsApp has given the notification to users suggesting that they will be required to agree to the new terms and policy to continue using the messaging app post-February 8. But now WhatsApp had subsequently extended this deadline till May 15.
The updated policy and terms first announced that all the users need to accept the policy within February 8, to run WhatsApp. In failing of doing so users might lose access to their accounts. But recently the company introduced new ways to message businesses via WhatsApp Business.
Zuckerberg said, "business messages will only be hosted on its infrastructure if a business chooses so." He added, “We want everyone to know the lengths we go to protect your private messages, so we’re moving the date of this update back to give everyone to understand what the update means”
