WhatsApp has revealed how it will gradually cripple accounts held by users who do not accept the platform’s impending privacy policy changes, due to come into effect on May 15.

WhatsApp first announced its new usage terms early last month and the changes at the time were interpreted by many users to mean that the platform would share their messages with parent company Facebook.

It’s not clear what comes after that, but WhatsApp has a new policy of removing accounts that have been inactive for 120 days, and you will be classified as one if you reject the new words.

Tapping the banner will include a more detailed overview of the updates, providing more information of how WhatsApp interacts with Facebook. The Facebook-owned company says that it will finally notify users to read the updated guideline and approve it to continue using the app.
