Facebook's instant messaging mobile service, WhatsApp, will now turn off your ability to send and receive messages if you reject their new terms.

It's been a good couple of weeks since Facebook's WhatsApp released an update with their new terms and conditions, stating that you have to agree in order to continue using their instant messaging app. However, this was not well received by the public as Facebook demands more private information and data from their users. With data privacy being at an all-time high, many users are looking for alternative messaging apps and services.

However, even though millions of WhatsApp users were threatening to find alternative messaging services that respect user data a lot more than WhatsApp, Facebook realised that their messaging App is by far still the biggest and most popular. Facebook has released a statement that says, if a user rejects the new WhatsApp terms of service, they will block all incoming and outgoing messages on the app and render your account "inactive". And "inactive" accounts are automatically deleted after 120 days.
