You think that's funny. Just read about Facebook's feud with Apple. It's hilarious how they are worried about users suffering from them not being able to sell targetted ads.

It is not scrapped, only change is that they will restrict everything instead of deleting the account if you haven't accepted new terms.

You’ll encounter limited functionality on WhatsApp until you accept the updates. This will not happen to all users at the same time.
  • You won’t be able to access your chat list, but you can still answer incoming phone and video calls. If you have notifications enabled, you can tap on them to read or respond to a message or call back a missed phone or video call.
  • After a few weeks of limited functionality, you won’t be able to receive incoming calls or notifications and WhatsApp will stop sending messages and calls to your phone.

Indian Government tells WhatsApp to withdraw its new policy terms...​


The Indian government is not pleased with WhatsApp’s new privacy policy. The nation’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has once again directed the Facebook-owned company to withdraw the planned update.

In a letter to WhatsApp on Tuesday, MeitY has given the popular instant messaging provider seven days to offer a “satisfactory” response. Failure to do so, the ministry warned, will prompt lawful measures.

I would have appreciated our Govt, if they have asked this well before the deadline. But still, this is better than doing nothing...
